Prime Appointments has rallied the community in a mammoth fundraising effort for Alzheimer’s Disease. Now on our sixth event as official partners of Alzheimer’s Society, we're pulling out all the stops to fight the UK’s no.1 biggest killer.
We are now three years into our official lifetime partnership with the Alzheimer’s Society! 2019 got us off to an amazing start on our fundraising journey, raising over £12k in 12 hours for the Golf Day, over £1k for Elf Day and over £1k for our first Memory Walk and so much more. In 2020, our amazing team surpassed all expectations and raised an incredible £15,000 in one event, with 10 of our team taking to the skies at Beccles airfield, for their skydive challenge.
With Covid-19 putting the brakes on so many plans, Prime are delighted to have been able to host their 2021 Memory Walk raising over £3,500 thanks to the generous support of the local community with 60 attendees from local businesses & the local community walking together to promote change. The event was a huge success, doubling in size since the first walk in 2019. This incredible sum takes the total raised in 3 years to £46,000 for Alzheimer’s Society raised in 3 years.
30 years after their two-woman power duo, MDs Margaret and Robyn first began Prime Appointments, Robyn wants to use her business standing in the community to fight back.
“It’s just fabulous to see so much support pouring in from our friends, family, clients and candidates.” Robyn says. “Alzheimer’s is often overlooked amongst other serious diseases, and sufferers urgently need more support. I hope that by using our standing in the community and our connections to local job seekers, businesses and people from all walks of life, we can make a real difference.”
Donations flooded in from local community members, both in monetary form and as event day promotions & catering. Local businesses big and small and jobseekers from all walks of life have been moved to contribute. Just some of the generous contributors and supporters include Tiptree Patisserie, Frair Tuck’s Catering, Essex Balloon Studio & Tesco catering our event, and local business promoting from Anytime Fitness, Haart and the Valero Lounge.
But the fights not over yet! Alzheimer’s remains critically underfunded and Prime wants to change this. We have pledged to raise an enormous £100,000 by 2028 as our effort to help fund research and support services. Every donation gets us one step further so if you want to help then please get giving!
