To continue our charity spotlight section, where we will provide an overview of each charity we are supporting in our 2018 #share7 campaign, we are focusing on the Alzheimer’s Society.
Every member of the Search Seven team has chosen a charity to support this year that is close to their hearts, with the Alzheimer’s Society, being the charity that Dave Lees, our Head of Strategy, chose to support through the #share7 fundraising initiative.
Dave states “I chose the Alzheimer’s Society as I’ve first-hand experience of the devastating impact it can have on a loved one and their families. Knowing there are more than 850,000 people in the UK alone living with Alzheimer’s, it’s important that more research is done to understand the disease so that one day a cure may be found. The Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading dementia support and research charity and was therefore an obvious choice to support and raise awareness for.”
On being included in #share7, Amber Woodward, Community Fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Society, has said: “We are thrilled that Dave has chosen us to take part in the #search7 campaign and that he and the team have given their time to support Alzheimer’s Society. Dementia can happen to anyone and there is currently no cure. But with the right support, people can live well with dementia. As a charity, we rely on the generosity of individuals like Dave to help us continue our vital work so that Alzheimer’s Society can continue leading the fight against dementia.”
We have three big charity events lined up this year, starting with a charity football match at the AMEX stadium on May 7th (7pm kick off), followed by a golf event on 30th August and a quiz night on 22nd November. More info can be found here, with sponsorship packages available for the AMEX game, as well as how to enquire about places for a golf and a quiz team!
