Newcastle United forward Peter Lovenkrands is offering his support to people with Alzheimer's disease.
The Danish international has been personally affected by the illness after his late father, Bent, suffered from Alzheimer's before his death two years ago.
Now the 32-year-old has raised more than £18,000 for charity, and is using his status as a Premier League footballer to increase awareness of the disease. Visit JustGiving for more details.
