Just wanted to say how disappointed I am with the Alzheimers Society themselves. In the 3 weeks leading up to my mum's funeral, I emailed them 3 times asking them for some literature I could give out to friends and family who wished to make donations in lieu of flowers. Having heard nothing, I telephoned them, someone had to look into my query and phone me back, I did then receive the literature required, but just a day before the funeral, too late to give them out. I sent them 3 personal cheques over 2 weeks ago, and had had no acknowledgement whatsover. I rung them last week, had to wait until the next day for someone to phone me back, who was under the impression I had sent 2 cheques. I told them no, I had sent 3. I am still waiting for an acknowledgement by post from them, together with, as I had requested, something I could send to the 3 people that gave me cheques, by way of a thank you and letting them know what their money would be used for. I wish now I had sent these 3 cheques to our local Alz and Dementia Support Services charity. Just wanted to share this with you as it has made me a trifle cross!
