This month, we are pleased to be supporting Alzheimer’s Society with our £2,000 charity donation. The donation was given to a fundraiser set up by Neil Norman, aged 93, father of Tisski’s Technical Consultant, Peter Norman. Neil set himself the fundraising challenge, where he would strive to walk 100 laps of his close in memory of his late wife, Anne.
Since starting the challenge, Neil has managed to walk over 110 laps, which is equivalent to more than 14 miles. He’s planning to continue with his challenge and carry on raising as much money as possible for the charity. He has raised over £6,000 so far, smashing his original target of £100!
Alzheimer’s Society is an amazing charity that is there for anyone who has been affected by dementia. The charity provides expert advice and guidance, as well as a vital source of support and a safe space to turn to whenever someone needs them. They want to ensure those living with dementia can live a fulfilled life, without fear of being treated unfairly and free from any stigma or prejudice.
Alzheimer's Society ensures no one has to face dementia alone. Funds received by the charity help them provide their Dementia Advisers, who offer critical support to those living with the condition and their carers. They’re also able to invest the funds in important research into better treatment and care. In the past 12 months, Alzheimer’s Society has helped 92,000 people get access to direct support and have provided 54,000 Companion Calls, provided by volunteers, to help combat loneliness.
