Peterborough United have announced that they will be supporting the Alzheimer’s Society as their chosen charity of the year for this season.
The partnership will help support the charity's work and highlight the various opportunities for people to get involved.
More than 1,900 people live with dementia in Peterborough, including former Posh defender Peter Hindley, who was diagnosed with the disease 12 years ago.
Peter's wife, Sandra, is pleased the club will be supporting the Alzheimer's Society, who is one of many families that receive assistance from the charity's Dementia Resource Centre on Lincoln Road.
Sandra said: "Football clubs receive a great amount of attention and I'm sure this partnership will make meaningful differences to help people understand more about dementia and the support available."
