Alzheimer’s Research UK’s celebrity supporters make invaluable contributions to our work.
Christopher fronted our first #ShareTheOrange campaign animation in 2016. The actor lost his father Ronnie with vascular dementia following a 14-year battle with the disease. Christopher also shared his personal experience of dementia with The Guardian, in support of the charity’s Fightback Campaign in 2015.
David Walliams is fronting our 2025 campaign – a mission to bring about the first life-changing dementia treatment by 2025. He also voiced our 2025 animation, that sets out our ambitious goal. David has also been incredibly generous donating items for auction, to raise funds for pioneering research.
