NEW for 2020, The Local Word is supporting two Chosen Charities.

Throughout the year, I am raising awareness (and money) for two fantastic causes – one local, and one national.

The LOCAL Chosen Charity for 2020 is the Ollie Young Foundation.Ollie Young Foundation logo - The Local Word

This amazing charity raises funds for paediatric brain tumour research and support, in memory of little Ollie Young, who died in 2012, a day before his 6th birthday.

The NATIONAL Chosen Charity for 2020 is Alzheimer’s Society.Alzheimer's Society logo - The Local Word

The wonderful Alzheimer’s Society is at the forefront of research, support and advice for those affected by this, the most common form of Dementia.
