Our intrepid solicitor, Linda Salah, has done her parachute jump in aid of Alzheimer’s Research UK.
On Saturday 22nd September Linda jumped out of a plane just outside of Lancaster in aid of charity.
“I have always wanted to do a Sky Dive, and there is no better reason to do something on a bucket list than for charity – rather than just doing it to prove to myself that I can!“.
As a Solicitor specialising in elderly client work, I regularly encounter families affected by Alzheimer’s disease; it can cause much distress not only for the sufferer, but for the people around them, and can affect the lives of families for many years.
The charity is dedicated to not only researching a cure for this form of dementia, but also to providing advice and support to sufferers, families and carers. They do an amazing job.
With an ever-increasing aging population, we hear more and more about Alzheimer’s and dementia generally – any of us could find ourselves affected by this dreadful disease, and I for one hope that one day a cure will be found.
All of the Alzheimer’s Charities desperately need as much financial support as possible, and will do for many years to come. The firm I work for, Manners Pimblett Solicitors in Poynton, Cheshire, already have close connections to The Alzheimer’s Society, and this Sky Dive is my way of making a small contribution to the crucial work of Alzheimer’s Research UK.
Even though I have made the jump you can still make a donation and I urge all of my family, friends, acquaintances and professional contacts (and anyone else who knows me!) to make a donation – however small – in support of my adventure for this worthwhile cause.
