We here at Tienda Digital we are always keen to help those who really need it, and that’s why for the next year we have chosen to partner with the Alzheimer’s Society to help raise money for an amazing cause. Today is the World Alzheimer’s Day so a great time to announce them as our new chosen charity.
Our reason for choosing such an incredible charity is how close it is to home. A number of our team have been affected by Alzheimer’s and Dementia, and felt very strongly about working with this charity going forward.
The Alzheimer’s Society is the only UK charity which invests in research into Dementia care, cause, cure and prevention, making it a fantastic charity to work with. They not only work to increase our knowledge on the disease and how to fight it, they also campaign for the rights of those who have Dementia (and other associated illnesses), as well as those who may have been indirectly effected by the disease.
They also offer a range of advice, information and emotional support to people affected by dementia. With over 3,000 services across England, Northern Ireland and Wales, there is always going to be someone near you to offer support, which includes advisors, support workers, volunteers, sessions and cafes.
Our pledge for the year is to raise at least £5,000 over the next 12 months for the charity. We will be hosting fundraising events and activities, so make sure you’re following us on our social media channels to keep up-to-date with what’s going on, we might even convince Daniel to shave his head!
We are also creating something very special for the charity, which we are super excited to launch. So, keep your eyes peeled for that too!
If you would like to find out more information about the Alzheimer’s Society, what you can do to raise money for them or if you’re looking for some support then please take a look at their website here.
We’re looking forward to making a difference and our Just Giving page will be up soon and in the meantime our staff are planning ways in which we can raise money.
