Local recruiters raise money for Alzhemier's Society

20 December 2012

Staff from Hays, the leading recruiting expert, in Swindon, hosted a quiz night to raise money for Hays’ charity partner Alzheimer’s Society, and raised £300 for the charity.

Alzheimer's Society is the leading support and research charity for people with dementia, their families and carers. There are 750,000 people with dementia in the UK and numbers are set to rise to one million by 2021. The Society's fight for a better world for people with all types of dementia takes a wide range of forms. Through a network of local services, the Society provides practical services and support for people with dementia and their carers.

Hannah Riddett, Manager at Hays, says: “Local events like this, along with other individual efforts, will help us reach our fundraising target. We are proud to support such a fantastic charity and will continue to raise money locally and involve the support of the community where ever possible. We all had a great time and my congratulations go out to housing group Aster for being the overall winner. Thank you to the local businesses who donated prizes to the raffle”

Jeremy Hughes, Chief Executive at Alzheimer’s Society, said: “We are delighted that Hays is giving time to support Alzheimer’s Society. As a charity, we rely on the generosity of organisations like Hays to continue our vital work. Hays’ fantastic efforts will help us champion the rights of people living with dementia and the millions of people who care for them.”
