Today in the Dunlopillo head office we are holding our very own Cupcake Day for Alzheimer’s Society. Cupcake Day is a day dedicated to defeating dementia with the help of the small but mighty cupcake, aiming to raise funds and awareness of the fight against dementia. 850,000 people in the UK have dementia and this is set to rise to over 1 million by 2025.
Many of our talented office staff have been whisking up a storm this week in preparation for Cupcake Day and the results look (and taste!) delicious. All of our cupcake donations will go to support the work of the Alzheimer’s Society Charity to help find a cure for dementia, fund vital services and campaign for the rights of people with dementia.
Just £5 could pay for 100 people with dementia to receive a helpcard, which they can carry with them when out in the community in case they should need assistance. Or £20 could pay for a person with dementia to attend one of our Dementia Cafés for a month, where they can share stories and advice with people who understand what they are going through.
I’m sure you’ll agree it’s a great way to put a big smile of everyone’s face and all for a great cause!
