On Tuesday 25th April, apetito Charity Champions attended a lunch with representatives from Alzheimer's Support.
Lee Sheppard and Lisa Hayes spoke of their personal experiences with the charity, commending the Champions for their work and stressing the importance of their role.
CEO of Alzheimer’s Support, Babs Harris, also presented to the Champions on the variety of support services the charity provides. Alzheimer’s Support has recently won the contract to run their services throughout the entire county, an exciting, but daunting prospect.
To continue to support families to the highest standard, an increasing amount of financial support is needed. Babs thanked apetito for our fundraising efforts; the £20,000 raised last year will go a long way to support families affected by dementia. However, the charity needs our continued support now more than ever.
Motivated to beat last year’s total, the session ended with the Charity Champions discussing fundraising ideas and how to further support our partner charities over lunch.
