Central England Co-operative Chief Executive Martyn Cheatle said:
More and more people are now being diagnosed with Dementia on a daily basis, with over 900,000 people now living with the condition in the UK. We are committed to making a real difference to families living with the effects of dementia by taking part in a wide range of fund-raising activities and offering customers and members the chance to support Dementia UK when they visit food stores, funeral homes and travel shops. I am proud to launch this charity partnership on behalf of everyone involved with Central England Co-operative and all of us are excited about working together to raise vital funds for this great charity.
