Classic Folios raise £1,764.50 for Alzheimer's Society
In 2019, we took part in several fundraising events for Alzheimer's Society. This included two of our team bidding farewell to their hair and bravely embracing the breeze on their bald scalps. They wisely chose to do this in August, so by the time the weather turned, some of their head insulation had returned.
It was a good job, too, as autumn saw us take part in a company-wide memory walk. The nine mile round trip alongside a flooded river saw us return to the office somewhat soggy and muddy, but having raised almost £1,000 for the great cause.
On Friday 31st January 2020, Andy Kendall – Community Fundraiser for Hampshire, Isle of Wight and Channel Islands – joined us in the office so we could present him with a cheque for the total amount raised: £1,764.50.
The work carried out by Alzheimer's Society is truly inspirational, as they raise awareness, fund research and support those suffering from dementia, which is the UK’s biggest killer. We were proud to be able to help them in their mission.
