NG Bailey employees have voted overwhelmingly in favour of Alzheimer’s Research UK becoming its second-ever charity of the year.
The company has set an ambitious target of raising £75,000 for the UK’s leading dementia research charity, which will be used to help fund world-class pioneering research focusing on diagnosis, prevention, treatment and a cure for dementia.
Across the UK, there are currently 850,000 people living with dementia and this number is expected to rise to one million by 2025.
Cal Bailey, NG Bailey’s Group Sustainability Director, said:
“We are delighted to be announcing our charitable partnership with Alzheimer’s Research UK. Dementia is a cause that has touched many of our employees’ lives in some way, which is why this wonderful charity won our staff vote.
“Our partnership is not only about raising funds but about giving our people an opportunity to learn more about dementia. Volunteers from across our company are already coming forward with fundraising ideas, and we are looking forward to really getting started.”
Jade Rolph, Corporate Partnerships Manager at Alzheimer’s Research UK, added:
“We are absolutely delighted that NG Bailey has selected Alzheimer’s Research UK to be its charity of the year. While our partnership is only just getting started, we have been blown away by the enthusiasm and motivation of NG Bailey staff to raise funds for our vital cause.“
