Marlborough Golf Club has nominated Alzheimer's Support as the club's charity of the year for 2023. Over 7,000 people are recorded as living with dementia here in Wiltshire, so we wanted to support a local charity where our contribution will make a real difference.

Alzheimer's Support provides much needed one-to-one support workers and dementia advisers. They have dementia activity groups, day clubs and memory cafés and they support more than 2,500 people across the county. For every £1 raised 96p is spent on frontline services that make people's live better.

As Club Captain, I'm keen to make a difference. My mother and father-in-law both had a form of Alzheimer's. It was a horrible experience and heartbreaking to watch the impact on them and the family around us. With the support that we received, it made their final journey so much easier.  

We've set ourselves a target of £5,000. Let's do it together and raise much needed funds for this amazing local charity in the community!

Thank you,

Tim - Club Captain
