1:00pm Saturday 12th October 2013 in News
A singer-songwriter from Ilkley has been made a Champion of Alzheimer’s Research UK.
Rupert Stroud, 26, was given the title in recognition of his exceptional support for the charity following the loss of his grandma Eileen to Alzheimer’s disease in 2009, aged 87.
Alzheimer’s Research UK now has a small but growing group of 23 Champions – supporters who have gone above and beyond to help the charity in its mission to defeat dementia.
In recognition of being made a Champion, Rupert has contributed a blog post to Alzheimer’s Research UK’s new blog site online at dementiablog.org/rupert-stroud-always During the past 18 months, Rupert has raised over £5,000 for vital research.
