Leading UK boiler manufacturer Worcester Bosch has raised £30,000 for its charity partner, Alzheimer’s Society.

Worcester Bosch employees raised over £15,000 in cake sales, coffee mornings and charity walks, and the figure was matched by the company to bring the total donation to £30,000.

Additional fundraising efforts are set to continue throughout the rest of the year, with a second charity contribution planned for December.

In addition to the fundraising efforts, 90 Worcester Bosch employees joined the Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends initiative, in order to learn what it’s like to live with dementia so that better action can be taken both in work and in personal lives.

Sue Pennington, Corporate Communications Manager at Worcester Bosch, said: ‘We are incredibly proud of the work our team have achieved and hope our funds raised can go some way in in helping Alzheimer’s Society this year. They are such an important charity, and we hope the funds we have raised will ensure that they can continue offering valuable support to people who are affected by dementia.

‘We typically donate to a different charity partner at the end of each year but knowing the difficulty time everyone – especially the vulnerable – is going through, we’ve been able to fast-track this to help out sooner.’

Georgie Davies, from Alzheimer’s Society’s fundraising team, added; ‘A huge thank you to everyone at Worcester Bosch for their support. £30,000 is an incredible total to have raised and will enable us to continue providing support for families affected by dementia across the UK. Thank you for uniting with us against dementia.’
