The Alzheimer’s Society is the chosen charity of our branch. It is close to our hearts due to some of our family members being diagnosed with Alzheimer's.
We held a coach trip to Edinburgh in support of their mission and we filled a 57 seater bus in just under 3 weeks. We decided to put on another coach, travelling on the same day to the same destination, and within a couple more weeks, this bus was also full.
We held a game of bingo, blind cards and a quiz. Prizes included a £50 hays voucher and half of the funds raised from the bingo. We also bought some light refreshments, mince pies and Bucks Fizz.
Kirsty, Tracey, Toni, Faye and Katie were all involved in the planning of the event and the bus trip itself.
Overall we raised £874.25 in total for the charity, which we recently handed over to our local Alzheimer's representative.
