CLASSICS AROUND DORSET 2017

Road run and display for classic vehicles and motorbikes in support of the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance and the Dorset area of the Alzheimer's Society

OUR CHOSEN CHARITIES...

This year , we are again supporting two local charities; The Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance and the Dorset area Alzheimers Society.

Most of us are familiar with the concept of the Air Ambulance service, and in rural areas such as ours, they can mean the difference between life and death when every second counts, especially where access is difficult or even impossible for a normal road based ambulance.

We have supported the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance since we started Classics Around Dorset and are pleased to support them again this year.

The Dorset branch of the Alzheimer's Society tell us that there are over 12,000 people living with dementia in Dorset and that this number is rising. They have 45 staff members, with many being trained Memory Advisors who will deliver one to one support, advice and information to those with memory problems and their carers. Additionally, in the last year, they have delivered 682 support groups, such as Memory Cafes and Singing for the Brain sessions which are excellent for social interaction and peer support.

To deliver this type of service costs over £1 million a year. Some of this is funded by the local authorities, however, there is a shortfall of around £250,000 each year, and for this they rely on the support of individuals and events, such as ours.
