"On the 12th May 2018 it'll be 21 years since my mum passed away from cancer. I was two and a half years old and my brother was 5 years old. Last year I decided to do a "Brave The Shave" for Macmillan Cancer Support and raised a massive £1000!! I was astonished and warmed with the generosity and support of friends, family and total strangers. BUT, I thought.. why stop there? So I have decided to raise awareness and money for a different charity each year, and this year I've chosen Alzheimer's Research UK, a truly worthy cause. Every three minutes someone in the UK develops dementia. It shatters lives and leaves millions heartbroken. But fortunately something can be done.
Through raising money, it gives Alzheimer's Research UK the funding to support 1,000 researchers around the UK. Every pound counts."
Ryan raised £715 and thanks to the Langley Holdings Match Funding he was able to double the donation, making the total raised £1,430.
