Charity Partnership – Alzheimers Society

Keeping our communities connected, safe and warm is at the heart of what we do. Our chosen charity partner, Alzheimers Society, is receiving the benefit of our employees' efforts locally and nationally.

Our corporate charitable partnership with them will see us work collaboratively to create a dementia friendly working environment for not only our employees and their families, but also for our customers in the communities we serve.

Fundraising and volunteering form the heart of our commitment to those living with dementia. We’ve pledged our support to ensure that the charity receives much needed funds to help them towards a world without dementia.

With 1 in every 14 people over the age of 65 being impacted by dementia, we know that our colleagues will at some point come into contact with someone living with dementia, be it at a customer’s door or within their own home or family.

We’ve pledged to raise £50k a year for two years and we’re well on our way to exceeding our target. Our first year efforts saw our employees leap out of planes, climb mountains in the dark, cycle 100 kilometres  through London and drudge through 10 kilometre muddy obstacle courses to name but a few. Their brave and inspiring efforts are what makes our partnership a success and enables us to help support people living with dementia in our communities.
