Scotland’s leading family-owned auto business, John Clark Motor Group (JCMG), is embarking on a new venture to support Race Against Dementia (RAD).
The move emphasises JCMG’s ongoing philanthropic work and the enduring friendship between its founder, John Clark OBE (pictured above right), and three times F1 World Champion, Sir Jackie Stewart OBE.
“John Clark has been a wonderful supporter of Race Against Dementia for many years,” said Sir Jackie Stewart OBE.
“I am so grateful that the John Clark Motor Group and its dealerships are now backing RAD.
“There are three RAD Fellows in Scotland, at the Universities of Edinburgh and Dundee, all of whom are undertaking innovative research. I would be so pleased if a cure for dementia was found in Scotland!”
Race Against Dementia is a global charity, founded by Sir Jackie Stewart OBE, to fund pioneering research into the prevention and cure of dementia.
“Dementia is growing, it is not standing still and our aging population is fuelling and accelerating its growth,” said John Clarke OBE.
“The work being done by Race Against Dementia is so important and their work is already seeing results.
“As a father and a grandfather, I cannot imagine a life without memories and no longer having the ability to make a decision. I am proud to be associated and continue my support for Race Against Dementia and the incredible work carried out by the RAD Fellows.”
JCMG’s fundraising drive aims to collect funds for dementia research as well as spreading awareness of the disease which devastates so many families.
