IFCF celebrates raising £5m for Alzheimer’s Research UK

IFCF has raised an incredible £5 million for Alzheimer’s Research UK over the past decade.

IFCF marked this huge milestone by supporting the charity’s annual Research Conference which is taking place virtually this week from Tuesday 23rd March to Friday 26th March.

The two organisations have been working together for the past 10 years and the enormous amount raised has come from a wide range of activities. This includes hosting Charity Weeks in-store for colleagues and customers to get involved, supplier golf days and the Founder of Iceland Foods, Sir Malcolm Walker, even took on Mount Everest in support of the cause.

Most recently, IFCF helped rower Frank Rothwell to raise £1 million for Alzheimer’s Research UK. The 70-year-old rowed 3,000-miles solo across the Atlantic for Alzheimer’s Research UK and IFCF doubled the first £500,000 of donations to Frank’s JustGiving page.

The £5 million raised has supported more than 20 research projects and helped Alzheimer’s Research UK to make much-needed progress in the search for a life-changing treatment for dementia. There are almost one million people living with dementia in the UK today, and more than half of people know someone affected by this condition. Despite this, there are no treatments to slow, stop or prevent the diseases, mostly commonly Alzheimer’s, that causes dementia.
