Over the past year, Crown Simmons have been fundraising for Alzheimer’s Society
In November our team chose to support Alzheimer’s Society as our charity of the year. Alzheimer’s Society is the only UK charity that campaigns for change, funds research to find a cure and supports people living with dementia today. Crown Simmons Housing have been proud to support the charity through various fundraising events.
In May, we held an 80s flashback day in the office – celebrating the 80s with food, music and fancy dress. We also invited Jess Hillicks, a Community Fundraiser for Alzheimer’s Society to our office to run a Dementia Friends Session, a nationwide initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It was an incredibly informative and eye opening session.
On June 13th, we also took part in ‘Cupcake Day’, where we sold a huge array of cakes and treats. Grace also ran the Edinburgh Half Marathon to support our charity of the year.
We have loved supporting Alzheimer’s Society and are proud to have raised £1227!
