Help us win big pounds

This is a request for help.

The Alzheimer's Society has been shortlisted for Deloitte's Charity of the Year partnership - which is a fantastic achievement. If we win, Deloitte pledge to raise £500,000 over two years and you know how easily we could use that!

But we've still a long way to go to win the vote - we're up against stiff competition, with 7 other charities in our category. To be in with a chance, we need at least 500 of Deloitte's 11,000 staff to vote for us.

Voting opens on Wednesday 21 November and closes on Wednesday 5th December

So please join our campaign to secure 500 votes to fight dementia.

Please cut and paste this text, and email to family and friends to ask for their help - because even if you don't know anyone who works at Deloitte, they might.

Why should Deloitte staff vote for us?
- One in three of us will end our lives with dementia - unless we invest now to find better treatments and a cure. But while the UK invests nearly £300 in research for every person with cancer, only £30 is spent per person with dementia.
- Millions of families are facing the challenge of living with dementia every day. Two thirds of people with dementia live at home, meaning families bear the biggest burden of care.
Deloitte can join our fight against dementia - by helping us provide care, support and advice today, and invest in research to provide hope for the future.

If you would like further information about the Alzheimer's Society, or you have any queries, please contact Helen Dickens in the Corporate Partnerships team on 020 7423 3633.

Together we can gain plenty of support to secure this great partnership.

Thank you for your help!

Helen and Alix
