A Queen’s Park writer is launching a yoga event hoping to raise £10,000 for Alzheimers Research UK.

Ingrid Stone, author of Letters of A Dissatisfied Woman, is organising the Yogathon4Alzheimers event in honour of her mother, the novelist Valerie Blumenthal, who was diagnosed with Posterior Cortical Atrophy (PCA) in 2013, in her early sixties.

Ms Stone said: “Launching Yogathon4Alzheimer’s is my way of doing what I can to make a difference to a disease for which there is currently no cure. I have been amazed at the support I have received over the past months and at the generosity of everyone involved who are all giving up their time for free.

“Yogathon4Alzheimer’s is open to people of all ages and abilities, including people living with dementia. My ambition is to make this an annual, global event and to raise as much money as possible for Alzheimer’s Research UK. I firmly believe that research holds the answers to defeating dementia.”

Yogathon4Alzheimer’s takes place on June 21 at the Bush Hall music theatre in Uxbridge Road, from 2.30pm – 5.30pm.

Tickets for the event are priced £15 per person and are available fromticketsource.co.uk/yogathon4alzheimers.
Participants are encouraged to set themselves a fundraising target of £100 per person.
