Equestrian Olympian from Sturminster Newton in Dorset, William Fox-Pitt, has joined a line-up of famous faces who are backing Alzheimer’s Research UK. The charity specialises in finding preventions, better forms of diagnosis, new treatments and a cure for dementia.
William explained his motivation for endorsing Alzheimer’s Research UK’s involvement in the 2013 Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials:
“Badminton is one of the world’s most prestigious equestrian events. Each year it provides a wonderful platform for its nominated charity to raise awareness.
"Alzheimer’s Research UK is a hugely deserving cause, dedicated to defeating dementia and giving hope to people now and future generations. I hope as many people as possible will join me in supporting the research experts to help raise much needed funds.”
