Attain has committed to support the Alzheimer’s Society as our official company charity from December 2016 for one year. This charity was nominated and selected by Attain staff.
Alzheimer’s Society lead a range of work across the UK offering support for anyone worried about or affected by dementia, including offering information and support, funding medical and social research and providing practical and emotional community-based support services. They also founded the “dementia friends” initiative to help raise awareness of dementia and to improve understanding of, and support people living with, the condition.
During 2015/16 Attain supported the two elected charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness. Staff raised over £4,300 through our Virgin Money Giving fundraising page. Last year’s initiatives included the ‘Great Attain’ Bake-Off, staff ‘dress down’ Fridays, Fantasy Football leagues and staff Christmas card donations. The company also made a financial contribution to the charities.
To kick start this year’s fundraising plans, Attain will not be sending customers christmas cards this year and instead we have made a £500 donation to the Alzheimer’s Society via our fundraising page. We hope that our customers welcome this. We look forward to continuing our fundraising into 2017.
We would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
