With more than 520,000 people in the UK living with Alzheimer’s and many of us personally affected, this is something close to our hearts at Freshminds. We wanted to do something about it and use our resources to raise money towards this valuable cause. So, with the help of our friends, family and the Freshminds network, we held our very first charity quiz in support of the Alzheimer’s society.
The organisation is only UK charity investing in research into dementia care, cause, cure and prevention. They have committed to spending £150 million on cutting-edge research over the next decade and their campaigners work to keep dementia at the top of the political agenda.
So we were really pleased to raise funds from tickets, donations and support from online contributions towards the valuable work that the Alzheimer’s Society is doing! It was a fantastic evening and we are continuing to fundraise for the charity, so if you are interested in contributing then you can find out more on our JustGiving page.
As well as the quiz, we also ran a prize draw on the evening with some very generous contributions from some great companies. These range from vouchers from Made.com, Pure and Boom Cycle, to luxury tea sets from T2 and teapigs and some very nice cufflinks from Patrick Mavros!
