Certsure staff across Dunstable, Chesterfield and Mansfield took part in a two-year effort to support the UK’s leading dementia research charity. Skydives and Peruvian treks saw the biggest donation levels.
Certsure, the organisations that operates the NICEIC and ELECSA brands, has raised £26,000 for Alzheimer’s Research UK (ARUK). In September 2017, Certsure employees chose to partner with ARUK, Europe’s leading dementia research charity, as its official charity.
There are currently 850,000 people in the UK living with dementia and it is set to rise to one million people by 2025. It is only through vital research carried out by ARUK that finding a solution to the problem is possible.
Since the partnership began, employees have taken part in any charity and fundraising opportunities including charity auctions, sweepstakes, fantasy football competitions, bake sales, charity runs and more.
Some of the biggest donations have come from a charity skydive in 2018 which raised over £10,000 and a trek to Machu Picchu earlier this year, raising over £7,000. Katy Abraham-Hall, regional corporate partnership officer at ARUK said:
“It has been a fantastic two years working with Certsure. I am so impressed, but not surprised at how much money you they have raised.
Certsure’s support is helping to power pioneering research that will lead to the breakthroughs we need to discover life-changing treatments for dementia. Thanks to the wonderful people at Certsure, we’re even closer to bringing about the first life-changing treatment for dementia and transforming the lives of everyone affected by the condition.”
