Singer-songwriter Rupert Stroud from West Yorkshire has been made a champion of Alzheimer's Research UK.
Rupert, from Ilkley, was given the title in recognition of his exceptional support for the charity following the loss of his much-loved grandma Eileen to Alzheimer's disease in 2009, aged 87.
Alzheimer's Research UK now has 23 such champions, supporters who have gone above and beyond to help the charity in its mission to defeat dementia.
Rupert, 26, has raised more than #5,000 during the past 18 months to help fund research into Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.
He released a single entitled Always with all profits donated to the charity, and hosted a fundraising music concert at Ilkley Playhouse.
In addition to raising funds, Rupert has spoken out about his grandma, who he called Gangan, to the media and at events, to help raise awareness of Alzheimer's Research UK's pioneering research and improve understanding of dementia.
Rupert, who studied at Leeds Metropolitan University, has written an article for the charity, about his motivation to support its work.
Rupert's music is a mix of indie, rock and pop. His songs are produced by Will Jackson at Soundworks Studios in Leeds.
His latest single Never Back Down has been played on Dermot O'Leary's show on BBC Radio 2 as well as BBC Radio Leeds, BBC Radio London and XFM.
He is currently writing and recording tracks for his third album, due for release in spring 2014.
