Mansfield Building Society staff back Alzheimer’s Society again

Posted onPosted on 6th Feb

Mansfield Building Society has chosen to support the Alzheimer’s Society as its charity partner for a second year.

Last year the team at The Mansfield fundraised and volunteered for the charity, raising £6,000 and helping to support more than 12,700 people estimated to be living with dementia across Nottinghamshire.

Colleagues voted to renew that partnership for 2024.

Alice Grewcock, community fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Society in Nottinghamshire, said: “We cannot thank Mansfield Building Society and all their wonderful staff enough for raising £6,000 for Alzheimer’s Society in 2023 and for making such a huge difference to the lives of local people affected by dementia.

“I am deeply moved that they have nominated Alzheimer’s Society to be their charity partner for a second year in 2024.

“This support could not have come at a more vital time as one in three people born today will develop dementia in their lifetime, and dementia is currently the UK’s biggest killer.

“Too many people face dementia alone, but a £10 donation could cover the cost of that first telephone conversation with one of our expert dementia advisers.”

Vickie Preston, head of HR at The Mansfield, added: “2023 saw colleagues work extremely hard to achieve a superb £6,000 donation.

“Fundraising events, ranging from cooking and serving breakfast cobs and Christmas dinners to taking part in the Alzheimer’s Society’s Trek to Remember, saw them pulling in sponsorship for their efforts.

“We look forward to championing Alzheimer’s Society again throughout 2024.”
