The team at Haskins Garden Centre in Snowhill has announced it will be focusing its fundraising efforts towards supporting Alzheimer’s Society for another year.
Employees at the centre aim to raise several thousands of pounds by running events throughout 2018, as well as providing the charity the space to host information and awareness evenings to raise further donations.
Alzheimer’s Society provides information and support to people affected by dementia, as well as funding research for a better future. According to statistics there are around 50,000 people living with dementia and it is predicted this will rise to 66,834 by 2021.
Lisa Looker, brand director at Haskins Garden Centres, commented: “It’s great that the Snowhill centre will be supporting Alzheimer’s Society for another year. The centre raised £3,363.86 for the charity in 2017 and we look forward to another successful year of fundraising.
“We hope to be hosting lots of events throughout the year and encourage our customers to get involved when they can.”
