Avanti founder and CEO Glen Smith is delighted that the team chose Dementia UK, as he sadly lost his father to Vascular Dementia at the end of 2016. Glen commented: “Dementia is a truly awful way for someone to end their life. I know only too well the terrible pressure and challenge it brings to the family of a loved one. My dad passed away less than a year after being diagnosed and I know he would be pleased that we’re supporting the work of Dementia UK”.

Dementia UK provide specialist dementia support for families through their Admiral Nurse service. The nurses work alongside the patients and families when things get challenging or difficult giving them one-to-one support as well as expert guidance and practical solutions people need. The Admiral Nurses expertise and experience helps everyone in the family to live more positively with dementia in the present and to face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence and less fear.

Martin Bishop, Director of Fundraising & Communications at Dementia UK, says: “We are incredibly grateful to Avanti Travel Insurance for choosing Dementia UK as their charity of the year. The money raised from this partnership will help Dementia UK to grow our Admiral Nurse service and provide the specialist dementia support that families need. We look forward to working together over the next 12 months.”

Avanti hold various fund-raising events throughout the year to raise as much money as possible for their chosen charity and are extremely grateful to their customers who also show their support with online donations via their website. Here is to a record breaking year of donations for such a worthwhile cause.
