David Baddiel: My Family - Not the Sitcom, Charity Performance, 23 Sept

'The impulse behind wanting to do a show like this stems from the conviction that laughter is the best - and indeed the only - way to grapple with this stuff.' (David Baddiel in The Sunday Times Magazine)

On the eve of World FTD Awareness Week, David Baddiel is doing a special performance of his one-man show, My Family - Not the Sitcom at London's Vaudeville Theatre. This is a no-holds barred show about David Baddiel's late mother, Sarah and her colourful sex life and his father, Colin who has FTD.

We are very privileged to be one of the chosen charities to benefit from the charity performance on Friday 23 September and all profits will be split between the Rare Dementia Support Fund, Alzheimer's Society and The Unforgettable Foundation. Click here to book tickets now.

Described as 'universally joyful'  by Chortle and “wonderful in the extreme. Belly laughing, thought provoking and shocking - just great” by fellow comedian, Rob Brydon, this is one not to be missed.

Food for Thought: Get Involved

For the second year running, countries across the globe are observing World FTD Awareness Week between 24 September and 1 October 2016. We are asking you to join in fundraising and organise a food-related event. This could be a coffee morning, afternoon tea, bake sale, supper club, cookery demo or anything else you may think of.

All money raised helps maintain and extend the Rare Dementia Support service - it really does make a difference. For more event ideas and inspiration, please email or call us for a chat on 020 3448 4724.

Support Jill

Jill Walton, nurse co-ordinator for Rare Dementia Support is a real-life wonderwoman who has been running support groups for FTD, PCA, PPA, fFTD and fAD for many years. Now she is taking on another challenge - 13 miles of running in October in the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon.

This is all in aid of the fund for Rare Dementia Support, to maintain and extend existing levels of support and ultimately enable everyone with or at risk of an atypical dementia to have access to information, support and contact with others affected by similar conditions.

Please sponsor Jill here.
