Home News CCF raises record amount for Alzheimer’s Society

CCF has upped its fundraising activity for Alzheimer’s Society to beat its previous years of support and give the charity a record-breaking donation.

The 41-strong CCF branch network are all working hard to meet the ambitious target, with teams across the country completing a variety of challenges to raise as much money as possible for Alzheimer’s Society to support its fight against dementia.

Recently, members of CCF braved the heights of the Yorkshire Three Peaks to raise £32,615.03  for the charity. The team climbed Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough peaks, in just 12 hours, to complete the challenge. Golf events and football sweepstakes are also taking place across the country to continue adding to the fundraising total.

Dean Pinner, managing director at CCF, said: “We are determined to make this a record-breaking year and raise as much money as possible for Alzheimer’s Society.

“I couldn’t be prouder of all of our teams across the country who are not only delivering excellent work for the business, but are finding the time to fundraise too. All money raised by CCF helps to make a real difference to those affected by dementia and their families, and this motivates us as a business to keep on going.”

Chris Stokes, senior regional corporate partnerships executive at Alzheimer’s Society, commented: “What CCF has achieved in such a short period of time is a testament to everyone working at the business. They have been innovative with their ideas, and people affected by dementia have always remained at the heart of everything they do.

“The money raised thus far, and continuing to be raised, will help so many people across the UK affected by dementia. By 2021, there will be 1 million people in the UK living with this disease and only by uniting with businesses like CCF can we take on dementia, together.”

CCF has been supporting Alzheimer’s Society since 2016. CCF’s fundraising progress for can be viewed at justgiving.com/companyteams/CCF2018
