Your celebration can help us make sure nobody faces dementia alone. Instead of gifts, why not use your birthday, wedding, anniversary or other special occasion to raise money for Alzheimer Scotland.


Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life, and you could make it even more special by asking your guests to donate to Alzheimer Scotland. Not only will it stop your guests from panicking about what to get you, it’ll help us to support over 90,000 people in Scotland living with dementia. As well as receiving the gifts on the day, you could set up an online giving page to include in your invites and use to share photos of your big day afterwards. Alternatively, you could purchase Alzheimer Scotland pin badges from our online shop as favours for your guests.


Include Alzheimer Scotland in your birthday by asking your loved ones to donate any money they’d have spent on your gift to our charity. Your gift could help us to run one of our community activity groups or fund our 24 hour Freephone Dementia Helpline. As well as monetary gifts, you could set up a birthday fundraiser on Facebook.


Anniversaries are such treasured occasions. Celebrate your milestone by asking for donations in lieu of gifts to Alzheimer Scotland and help us reach even more people living with a dementia diagnosis across the country.
