Scrivens raises £113,000 for charity
The optical group has supported the Alzheimer’s Society for the last five years
The opticians has pledged to continue to support the Alzheimer’s Society in 2020, with its 180 practices continuing to raise awareness and funds through a range of initiatives. During the partnership to date, employees have taken part in everything from book and bake sales to skydives and marathon treks.
In 2019, Scriven raised £20,000 for the charity, with one initiative including the donation of £1 for every customer who had their hearing tested during November’s Hearing Awareness Month.
Scrivens chose the Alzheimer’s Society as its charity partner due to the link between hearing loss and dementia.
Speaking about partnership, chairman of Scrivens, Nicholas Georgevic, said: “We’re delighted and proud that our partnership with Alzheimer’s Society has raised more than £113,000. There’s no doubt that the need for care and support for those living with Alzheimer’s is growing. It affects more and more people in the communities we serve. I know our staff are determined to continue raising more funds and awareness in the year ahead.”
Senior regional corporate partnerships executive for Alzheimer’s Society, Hayley Woodyatt, added: “We are so grateful for the enthusiasm and dedicated support we have received from Scrivens. Its incredible achievements over the last five years in raising a significant amount of money is testament to all its staff and colleagues.
“We are really pleased to have the opportunity to continue this partnership.”
