Mansfield Building Society Announces New Charity Partner
The Society has chosen Alzheimer’s Society as its new Charity Partner.
After considering a number of local charities, all Society colleagues had the opportunity to nominate and vote for their preferred choice and Alzheimer’s Society came out top. Throughout 2023 the team at The Mansfield will be fundraising and volunteering for the charity, helping to support more than 12,700 people estimated to be living with dementia across Nottinghamshire.
Dementia is an umbrella term, used to describe a set of symptoms that over time can affect memory, problem-solving, language and behaviour. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia but there are many others. Anyone affected can be supported by Alzheimer’s Society through some of the hardest and most frightening times, to improve their lives and help to avoid crisis.
Alice Grewcock, Community Fundraiser for Alzheimer’s Society in Nottinghamshire, said:
“We’re delighted that Mansfield Building Society has chosen us as their charity partner. It’s thanks to them and other dedicated supporters that Alzheimer’s Society can be a vital source of support for anyone affected by dementia and a powerful force for change.
“Too many face dementia alone. We will not rest until people with dementia and their carers live more fulfilled and less fearful lives, free from stigma and inequality.
“We look forward to seeing Mansfield Building Society’s fundraising achievements, as well as the awareness they raise locally.”
Vickie Preston, Head of HR, commented:
“We are delighted to announce Alzheimer’s Society as our new Charity Partner. The Mansfield has actively supported Alzheimer’s Society in previous years and we continue to work closely with Dementia Friends, who have provided training to all Society branch colleagues in how to support members affected by dementia. We look forward to championing Alzheimer’s Society throughout 2023.”
