Admiral Nurses provide life-changing support and guidance for families affected by all forms of dementia in communities, hospitals and hospices, on the free national Dementia Helpline, and in clinics.
Funds raised by P&A group will help the charity to reach more families facing dementia across the UK with the support of its Admiral Nurses.
Commenting on the announcement, Steve Morgan, Managing Director of the P&A Group, said:
“Raising money for charity is very important to all employees at the P&A Group and this year they have voted to raise funds for Dementia UK. The charity’s Admiral Nurses do an amazing job supporting not just those living with dementia, but also the wider family.
“We’ve already had a number of people sign up for a variety of different fundraising events. From bake sales, bingo nights and personal fitness challenges to fancy dress events, quiz nights, and dog walking days, there are lots of events to look forward to, including the 3 peaks challenge for anyone who is feeling particularly adventurous! This year we have set a target of raising £10,000 for Dementia UK.”
