Colleagues of local manufacturer Baxi Heating have baked, run, cycled and dressed up to raise money for Alzheimer’s Society.
The Oaklands Business Centre firm have seen its team members undertake a range of activities to help the charity to raise almost £17,000.
Hayley Woodyatt, Senior Regional Corporate Partnerships Executive, Alzheimer’s Society, said: “Baxi Heating’s achievements over the last 18 months are a testament to all their colleagues.
“They have been innovative with their ideas and have kept people affected by dementia at the heart of everything they do. This has resulted in a phenomenal £42,670 being raised for Alzheimer’s Society to date, and they have also made great efforts to raise awareness of dementia by rolling out Dementia Friends across their organisation.”
Heading up the CSR activities for the business is Maureen Tallis, who presented the latest cheque to Hayley for £16,940.
“As a business, we recognise that it is important to give back to the communities in which we work.
“Our people arrange and take part in fundraising activities at each of our sites and we never cease to be amazed at their dedication and the variety of their schemes.”
