We are pleased to announce that Alzheimer’s Society will be the new Moore Stephens Charity of the Year. The Partnership with Alzheimer’s will cover the 18 months effective from 1 January 2015.
Alzheimer's Society is the leading support and research charity which works to improve the quality of life of people affected by dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to rise to 1 million by 2025. The Society's fight for a better world for people with all types of dementia takes a wide range of forms. Through their network of local services, they touch the lives of over 30,000 people every week.
Alzheimer’s Society was chosen as our Charity of the Year by staff and partners through a nominations and voting process back in 2014.
Andrew Potts, Head of the Charity of the Year Committee, comments: “It’s an extremely worthwhile cause which is very close to everyone’s hearts as it effects the lives of many. I am really excited about our partnership with Alzheimer’s Society and look forward to working with as many staff as possible as well as raising as much as we can. We are working on a number of fundraising ideas, however if anyone has any bright ideas have a word with a member of the committee or myself.”
Jon Bodenham, Director of Fundraising at Alzheimer’s Society, comments: “We are hugely grateful to Moore Stephens for choosing to support Alzheimer’s Society as their new charity partner. The funds raised throughout this partnership will help us provide vital support to people living with dementia and their carers, whilst continuing our research in to the cause, cure, care and prevention of dementia. By working together we can help improve the lives of people living with dementia and their carers.”
