Support our cause

For Dementia Action Week this May, 8 brave Prime employees and 3 members of our friends and family will take a giant leap of faith. For the first time in our history as a business, we are organizing a CHARITY SKY DIVE!!!! We’ve just hit the one-quarter mark of £25,000 on the way to our 10-year target of £100,000 and we’ve never been more determined! In addition to the Skydive, this year we will also be hosting our second golf day! But for now, we’re focusing on raising as much money as possible for our Skydive, with loads of activities including coffee mornings, a dance class, car boot sales, an in-house quiz night and much, much more. Get involved by simply visiting our JustGiving page today.



I believe I can fly! Laura gets ready to wing it…

One of our Industrial Coordinator’s best qualities is her ability to reach for the sky and her fundraising efforts are no exception! Our brave jumper Laura-Anne will be taking to the skies for Dementia Action Week this May along with 8 of our other brave jumpers to raise money for Alzheimer’s Society.

To fund her leap of faith, Laura will need to raise £400 – no mean feat in just a few short months. We caught up with the industrious individual herself to get the scoop. Take a peak to find out what spurred her on to sign up and how she’s feeling about the flight of her life… 

 


What a year!


Our first year as official lifetime partners with Alzheimer’s Society has flown by, 2019 really has seen us get off to amazing start on our fundraising journey. We raised over £12k in 12 hours for Golf Day, over £1k for Elf Day, over £1k for our first Memory Walk and so much more. We also raised over £500 for Movember, £250 for Children In Need, £250 for Red Nose Day and as the next decade approaches, we’re not planning on slowing down any time soon. 


Where it all began...

People sometimes ask us why we chose Alzheimer’s Society. The reason is for Margaret Locke. Our co-founder, one-half of the dynamic power duo without whom none of this would be here, we’re doing this for her. At just 51, Margaret was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and it has been a real tragedy for everyone close to her to watch as this condition has progressed. A vibrant, passionate, fiercely intelligent woman, Margaret’s drive is what has got us here. With her passion for people and her creative vision, she is an amazing individual who we consider ourselves privileged to call not just business partner, but our dear friend.This friendship is the driving force behind our determination to create a world less affected by and, ultimately, free from Alzheimer’s, for Margaret and for millions of others around the world.


Our mission


"As we steadily climb towards our 28th year in business we recognise the importance of supporting our employees, our local community and beyond. As an SME we can not take the same steps as larger corporate giants, but we aim to make the best contribution we can to promoting change and supporting others."

Events so far…

Elf Day!

2018 marked our first fundraising event as official partners with Alzheimer’s Society. We decided to aim for £250. So, we were surprised when we managed to raise over £6,000 with our Elf Raffle! It was an amazing day.

Cake with a cause!

On 13th of June, we dusted off our whisks and got our rolling pins out for Alzheimer’s Society’s Cupcake Day! As part of our initiative to raise £10k for our chosen Charity of the Year, we went all-out, hosting an in-house company bake-off.

Golf day!

The 14th of June saw our first ever Golf Day! With a round of golf, luxury prizes and one very competitive auction we raised an incredible £12k. Blown over by the generosity of our clients & friends, our first Golf Day certainly won’t be our last!

Memory walk!

On the 29th of September we all put our best feet forward for our Memory Walk. From regular hiking enthusiasts to the not-so-outdoorsy members of our team, we took part to help fund the vital research into beating dementia.

Dress down for a £1!

Look after the pennies and the pounds will keep rolling in! To keep the pennies rolling in, we host a dress-down Friday at the end of every month. Every little donation brings us one step closer to hitting our target which we plan to smash!
