Dementia support chosen as Goodwood Estate Charity Partner
Dementia Support is delighted to announce the beginning of a two-year partnership with the Goodwood Estate.
Goodwood is a unique sporting estate set in 11,000 acres of beautiful West Sussex countryside. Owned by the Dukes of Richmond since 1697, it is renowned for its thrilling motorsport events and spectacular horse racing. These two sports are a fundamental part of the estate's history and heritage, but there is more to Goodwood than horses and cars. The estate includes an organic farm, four restaurants, two 18-hole golf courses, a private members club, an aerodrome, a health club, a hotel and a 10-bedroom luxury retreat. Throughout its 300-year history, Goodwood has been renowned for its world-class entertaining and the family's willingness to share their sporting passions with the wider public.
Goodwood will be supporting our work in a range of ways, from fundraising at their world renowned events, staff volunteering, through to working together to make the Goodwood Estate more accessible for people living with dementia.
Sally Tabbner, CEO of Dementia Support commented; "We are delighted to have been chosen as Goodwood's Charity of the Year for 2023 and 2024. The support of a prestigious local group such as the Goodwood Estate will make such a difference to our charity, and the lives of the people living with dementia that we support. It is an important time for the charity as we grow to help support other communities, and our partnership with Goodwood will help Sage House to continue to be a centre of excellence for dementia care" The Duke of Richmond commented, “Our aim is to help transform the lives of as many people as possible living with dementia. Research carried out into the provision of dementia services locally, suggests that assistance is fragmented and that significant benefits could be derived from further funding. At Goodwood, we hope to help further the amazing work Dementia Support have already started by assisting with fundraising efforts during the two-year partnership”
