In 2017 we embarked upon a 3 year partnership with Alzheimer's Society and Alzheimer Scotland and during that time we helped to raise more than £240,000. But our charity partnerships are for more than fundraising. We’ve used this opportunity to better understand what it means to live with dementia. Scroll down to find out more about the work we’re continuing to do to create a lasting legacy, dementia-friendly branches and a Society where no one is left out.
Alzheimer's Society and Alzheimer Scotland
Over 850,000 people in the UK are affected by dementia, with Alzheimer’s disease the most common cause^. That’s why, Skipton colleagues voted to partner with the Alzheimer's Society and Alzheimer Scotland. These two great charities campaign not only to fund vital dementia research, but also to raise awareness and make the world a friendlier place for people living with the condition.
