My Christmas wish is to find a cure for dementia


My Christmas wish is to find a cure for dementia.

Like millions of people, I know how painful it can be to lose someone you love to dementia.

And just like so many, I dearly wish for a cure.

So it is in memory of my dear mum, Pauline that I'll be making a donation to Alzheimer's Research UK this Christmas. And I’d love it if you could join me.

Our donations will help scientists to find new ways to diagnose, treat and even prevent dementia. And one day soon, those three things will lead to a cure.

I really wanted to change the ending for my lovely mum. But this way, I can help others to hold on to the people they love instead. And that feels good to me.

Because we all have our wishes at Christmas. And hoping for an end to dementia is one of the biggest and best of all.

Every year I make Mum’s delicious cake. You can find her recipe below, along with two Christmas recipes from Great British Bake Off winner, Candice Brown.
