Wards sponsorship to help fund vital dementia research

Wards is proudly sponsoring BRACE Dementia Research’s 2024 Charity Gala in Bristol this September.

We are long-time supporters of BRACE and the vital dementia research that they fund in Bristol and across the South West, and our sponsorship will support the charity’s fundraising efforts to make even more research possible.

Dementia will affect one in two of us in our lifetimes, either through developing the condition or through caring for a loved one. To prevent dementia, which currently does not have a cure, research is essential.

In recent years, BRACE has supported a breakthrough in early dementia diagnosis through funding the development of an early Alzheimer’s diagnostic test called Fastball, developed at the University of Bath. The test is currently being investigated by the NHS in Bristol for potential future use.

With the development of new treatments, such as the dementia drugs hitting the headlines, earlier diagnosis is more important than ever.  However, to indicate the importance of fundraising and support, the charity received funding requests for almost £3 million in 2023 - of which only £700,000 could be offered.

This year’s Gala will be held at the Harbour House Hotel in Bristol, and guests will be treated to a three course dinner, live entertainment and auction, and there will be the opportunity to talk to researchers.

Wards will be in attendance at the Gala and if you would like to join us and support BRACE, please go the BRACE Charity Gala event page to book your tickets.
