Memories: RAD release trailer for our Memories series – who’s coming up next?

Posted on the 28th November 2020

Race Against Dementia are excited to reveal our Memories Trailer and to announce seven further episodes in the ’MEMORIES’ series of conversations, recorded remotely because of COVID-19 restrictions, will be released over the coming months.

They feature HRH the Princess Royal, Prince Salman, the Crown Prince of Bahrain, His Serene Highness, Prince Albert of Monaco, tennis legend Rod Laver, Nick Mason of Pink Floyd, impressionist Rory Bremner and opera singer Dame Kiri Tekanawa. You can catch up on previous episodes here featuring Mark Webber, Daniel Ricciardo, Sir Michael Parkinson and Nando Parrado as well as intimate discussion with Sir Jackie himself reflecting on his childhood and the start of his racing journey.

Memories: Support our fight to protect yours.

Please donate and help us to protect future families from losing theirs.

I have been fortunate to have a wonderful career and my wife Helen was by my side through it all. We should have been able to share those memories forever but dementia steals that away. Without urgent progress, one in three people born today, will go on to suffer dementia and that is unacceptable. I passionately believe that the way Formula One uses problem-solving and innovative thinking to achieve remarkable developments at speed can help scientists to create a real and much-needed breakthrough in dementia research.

When the world is, rightly, focussed on combatting the dreadful COVID-19 pandemic, it is vitally important that the fight against dementia is not allowed to diminish in importance. My ‘MEMORIES’ series of conversations is intended to show the value of shared remembrances and recollections to human health and well-being and help raise further donations so we can grow our programme of vital research fellowships.

I am enormously grateful to all those who have given up their time to speak so openly in these conversations. I hope everyone can find some comfort and enjoyment in them during these difficult times.

Sir Jackie Stewart
