Hörmann UK has announced that since it began working with Alzheimer’s Society in 2014, it has raised £45,759 for the charity by undertaking several challenges and fundraising activities.
Having put their creativity to the test, staff have undertaken challenges such as walking the Leicestershire Round, competing in a 5km and 10km obstacle race, taking part in a bake off, and much more.
Commenting on the partnership with Hörmann, Ray Nash, senior regional corporate fundraising executive at Alzheimer’s Society said: “We are extremely grateful for all the support we’ve received from everyone at Hörmann UK over the last four years. It’s brought us great joy to see all the different ways they’ve raised money for us and the final sum is incredible. On behalf of everyone at Alzheimer’s Society, I would like to say a big thank you to the Hörmann UK team for all their fundraising efforts.”
David O’Mara, marketing manager at Hörmann UK, said: “When we first started working with Alzheimer’s Society, many of our employees weren’t aware of the disease, so we’re really proud to have played a part in helping raise awareness both internally and externally. In addition to this, everyone in the business not only has a greater understanding of it but they know the symptoms to look out for. We have thoroughly enjoyed taking on the challenges to help raise as much money as possible for such a worthy cause and we look forward to supporting Alzheimer’s Society in the future.”
Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading dementia support and research charity for anyone affected by any form of dementia across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Details on the charity’s work are available at www.alzheimers.org.uk.
