Memory Book

A fundraising book in support of Alzheimer's research

We have received the letter below from Mrs Angie Cox and in response we have agreed to open this new category and invite you to contribute. The closing date is 1 December 2011. Angie will then select the entries of her choice for inclusion in the publication. We hope that you will support the initiative. Please feel free to submit more than one entry.

Please note that this is a fundraising venture and that no royalties will be payable.

Nina and Rupert (Angie's mother in law and husband)I am writing in the hope that some of your authors may like to contribute to a fundraising book for Alzheimer’s Research UK. 

 My Mother-in-law has Alzheimer’s and as a family we have watched the devastating effects of this terrible disease on her life.

I am putting together a “Memory” book and am asking authors, public figures and the general public to contribute one “memory” from their life that they would like to record and are happy to share with others.  The idea is to put together a diverse collection of stories with a wide-ranging appeal. With the backing of a few “high profile” names I am hoping to create a must have quality book that people genuinely want to buy.  I hope it will appeal, in particular, to your unpublished writers as it could showcase their talents to a wide audience.

We have the full backing of Alzheimer’s Research UK.  According to their information dementia affects 820,000 people in the UK and 25 million of the UK population have a close friend or family member with dementia.  I hope that this book will highlight the tragedy of losing one’s memory and to raise some money for their good work in stemming the affects of this terrible disease on the individual, their family and society in general.  We also have the support of our local newspaper, the Western Gazette, who intend to follow our progress through to publication.

I am looking for a memory of approximately 500 words. The “memory” could be from a personal or professional life, be serious or more light-hearted – just something the writer does not want forgotten.  

I look forward to hearing from you in the hope that you can support me in raising funds for this worthwhile cause. Please be assured that 100% of all profits from this project will go to Alzheimer’s Research UK.
