Scrivens supports the Alzheimer’s Society
The optical group has raised almost £85,000 since it selected the Alzheimer’s Society as its charity of choice four years ago
Since the optical group entered into partnership with the charity in 2015, it has raised almost £85,000 to support its work.
Over the last 12 months, employees and customers at Scrivens’ 180 branches have embraced fundraising by taking part in sponsored challenges, cake and book sales, and fancy dress.
Speaking about the fundraising, operations director at Scrivens, Adrian Ellis said: “The response from staff and customers throughout the business has been fantastic. Alzheimer’s touches so many families in the communities we serve and the need for care and support continues to grow. We chose Alzheimer’s Society as our primary charity partner because of the vital work it does and because of the now accepted evidence of a link between uncorrected hearing loss and dementia.”
Alzheimer’s Society estimates that 23 million people have a close friend or family member with dementia.
