We would like to say a big thank you to all the staff at Invesco Perpetual who have finished their one year partnership with Dementia UK by donating an incredible £70,000. The money raised will be used to set up the first ever Admiral Nurse Service in Henley on Thames, allowing us to offer specialist one-to-one support for families living with dementia in the area.
Claire Myers,Charity and Community Support Manager, says “Working with Dementia UK in 2015 was a hugely rewarding experience for all of us at Invesco UK and we are delighted to be able to turn our fundraising into support for 100s of families living with dementia in the Thames Valley. We wish Dementia UK all the best in their goal to provide a lifeline for more and more families every year.”
Staff at Invesco in the UK have all gone the extra mile for the charity by organising and taking part in a number of fundraising events, including holding a successful summer party; hosting two Time for a Cuppa tea party events and taking part in the last Hour Giving Campaign in September 2015, which raised over £6,500 with 154 people participating.
Hilda Hayo, CEO, says, “2015 has been the best year yet for Dementia UK in terms of fundraising income generated. We now have 154 Admiral Nurses in post and are well on the way to recruiting another 46 nurses by the end of 2016. We’ve developed a lot as a charity over the year and we couldn’t have done it without the help of Invesco Perpetual staff.”
