With Black Friday deals just around the corner, here are just a few ways you can support Alzheimer’s Research UK online:

And it’s not just online shopping that can raise vital funds for dementia research, it’s car scrapping sites, search engines and reward schemes too!

Give with bing logoThrough Microsoft’s Give with Bing rewards scheme you can raise money for Alzheimer’s Research UK simply through your Bing searches!

If you have an old car that needs to be scrapped why not check out Giveacar and Charity Car who can turn your old car into donations! Simply visit their website to see how much your old car is worth and they will arrange the collection for you. They will even auction your car if it is in good condition to raise extra funds for charity.


As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, your support means more than ever to us as we strive to protect dementia research. Alzheimer’s Research UK is facing a predicted drop in income of up to 45% as a result of the pandemic – which is threatening the progress we have made into the search for life–changing treatments for dementia.

So please do consider us when you shop online this festive season – you’ll be doing something incredible for dementia research and all those affected.

Happy shopping!
