We all want the best for the club and have a vision for taking Bath City FC forward as a real community asset. “The effort put in by a wide

has been extraordinary, and thanks must go to all those individuals, businesses and organisations who have responded by listening to us or reading about us and who have generously contributed.” Among the high profile club supporters who have been busy encouraging contributions is award-winning film director and lifelong Bath City fan Ken Loach. He said: “Community ownership means the club will be a hub for lots of different activities in the community, from young mothers with kids to older people taking part in things like Walking Football, serving as a centre for community activity. With the Bath City Foundation already very successful, we think there is still a lot more we can do, to transform the club and the area.”

Help put us out of business

In 2017, BRACE (Alzheimer's Research) will mark 30 years funding world class dementia research in Bristol and in universities across the South West and South Wales. But we'd really rather not be doing this. The fact is that research into unravelling the changes in brain function that lead to Alzheimer's and other dementias and how these may be prevented remains woefully underfunded.

develop a life changing medication or vaccine to help everyone affected by dementia. The knowledge generated by BRACE funded dementia researchers is impressive and their work in the laboratory has led to ground breaking clinical trials. It’s a fact that long-term, painstaking research is the only real hope we have to transform the outlook for those who live with dementia or who will develop it in the future. BRACE exists to defeat dementia. We are proud of what we've achieved

so far but the search for a cure remains elusive. Please consider supporting BRACE – for better treatments, earlier diagnosis and one day a cure - and put us out of business sooner.
