Alzheimer’s has affected the Proud family over the years, losing Grandad Proud to the disease over 10 years ago, and now, with my Aunt being diagnosed at a very young age.

My Aunt has completed some incredible challenges in her time, including Everest, Kilimanjaro and cycling Asia, but nowadays she needs help just to walk around her local park.

Wiltshire charity Alzheimer’s Support has brought a touch of adventure and fun back to her days, with the help of support worker Paula who takes her on days out, horse riding and walks in the countryside.

So, instead of traditional wedding gifts or money towards a honeymoon, we would like to ask guests at our wedding at the Tank Museum to donate to Alzheimer’s Support and help them continue to support people like my Aunt.
