NICEIC & ELECSA raise £20,000 for Alzheimer’s Research UK

Certsure, which operates the NICEIC and ELECSA brands, has raised £20,000 for Alzheimer's Research UK (ARUK), smashing its two year target one year early. Last year, Certsure staff chose to partner with ARUK, Europe's leading dementia research charity, as its official charity. Certsure committed itself to raise £20,000 across two years, but through various fundraising efforts, the firm has smashed its target one year ahead of schedule.
