Xperience Group raised over £6700 in aid of their chosen charity of 2017, Alzheimer’s Society, to help people affected by dementia, inspiring change and advancing research.
In 2017, Xperience Group selected Alzheimer’s Society as a chosen charity of the year. The Group held a raft of fundraising activities dedicated to this cause, raising over £6700.
Employees across Xperience Group biked, swam and ran their way to support people living with dementia and their carers. Taking on one of the toughest races in the UK, Vitruvian Triathlon, and the Belfast City Marathon, the teams push their boundaries, motivated by the good cause.
Jeremy Hughes, Chief Executive at Alzheimer’s Society, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have been chosen by Xperience Group as their charity for 2017. There are 800,000 people living with dementia in the UK. It is caused by diseases of the brain and can happen to anyone. “
“As a charity, we rely on the generosity of individuals and companies like Xperience Group to help us continue our vital work. We are extremely grateful for their fundraising efforts, helping Alzheimer's Society to continue leading the fight against dementia.”
Sylwia Lysakowska, Marketing Executive at Xperience Group, commented “The challenges chosen last year put endurance levels to the test – suffice to say, our fundraising teams exceeded expectations and outperformed to support Alzheimer’s Society. I’m delighted for the total we raised. Onto the next challenge”.
