Here is some information about the cause that they are collecting for:

In 2015/16, for every £1 we received, we spent 89p on directly improving the lives of people with dementia. The other 11p goes towards generating future income.

Thanks to you, last year, our income increased from £90.7 million to £97.9 million. We spent 12% more on our work meeting the needs of people affected by dementia, inspiring change and advancing research. Through our local services, your support directly helped over 100,000 people.

With your continued support, we will make even greater progress towards our vision of a world without dementia.
