Another ‘Charity Day’ at Purchase Direct has raised £2,495 for Dementia UK. Account Manager Nicole Minides nominated Dementia UK for our latest charity event, which involved a fun-packed fundraising day in the office.

Dementia has touched the lives of several of our staff through their family members and the funds raised will help to improve care and support for families facing dementia.

Savannah Redhead, Community Fundraising Executive at Dementia UK said: “We are so grateful to Purchase Direct for organising this fundraiser for Dementia UK. One in two of us will be affected by dementia in our lifetime – either by caring for someone with the condition, developing it ourselves, or both. It can be exhausting and overwhelming, not only for the person with dementia, but also for the people caring for them, and their wider family and friends.

“Thanks to the hard work of our amazing fundraisers like Purchase Direct, more families than ever will be able to access the life-changing support offered by our Admiral Nurses.”
