Alzheimer’s Research UK (ARUK) teamed up with Oban last weekend  to shine a light on their #ShareTheOrange dementia awareness campaign, part of World Alzheimer’s month.

McCaig’s Tower was illuminated in orange on Saturday to highlight the cause.

Hilary Evans, Chief Executive of Alzheimer’s Research UK, said: ‘We wanted to put a spotlight on the seriousness of dementia and the huge impact it has on local communities.

‘We hope turning McCaig’s Tower orange drives intrigue in our campaign.

Alzheimer’s Research has joined forces with Samuel L Jackson  for the #ShareTheOrange campaign to highlight that physical diseases cause dementia, using an orange to symbolise the weight of matter lost in the brain as the condition develops.
