F & P Wholesale names Alzheimer's Society as its 2016 charity
F & P Wholesale, Primaflow & Connections have announced that they will be supporting the Alzheimer's Society as their chosen charity partner for 2016 and 2017.
The charity, which offers welcome support and advice for those caring for someone living with dementia, as well as much needed research into treatments, prevention and a cure for the illness, was voted for wholeheartedly by employees who will now get to work on a wide range of fund-raising activities.
Already in the calendar is the FPC 2016 Bike Ride in September, which aims to be bigger and better than ever this year. Covering over 140 miles, it will see a team of cyclists tackle a range of terrains as they travel between some of FPC's biggest locations.
"We are delighted to be able to offer our support to such a worthy cause," explains Jed Kenrick, (pictured) managing director at F & P, Primaflow & Connections. "Dementia affects over 850,000 people in the UK; this figure is expected to rise to one million by 2021, with no cure currently available.
"Through its tireless work, the charity aims to make sure being diagnosed doesn't mean life has to end, by providing the best support possible for people living with dementia and their carers alike. We hope our fundraising support will go some way to helping further the valuable research into finding a cure, and the care so many rely on can continue."
Ray Nash, senior corporate partnerships executive at the Alzheimer's Society adds:
"It's fantastic that F & P Wholesale is supporting Alzheimer's Society as its National charity for the next two years and I am really looking forward to working with the team.
"Through our network of local services, we touch the lives of over 30,000 people every week, providing practical services and support for people with dementia and their carers. Every year, more than a million people make use of the information we provide.
"We rely heavily on the support of companies like F & P Wholesale to continue our commitment to improving the lives of those affected by dementia. Money raised for Alzheimer's Society during our partnership will make a huge difference to the lives of people living with dementia today and fund research for a cure tomorrow."
