The day saw employees take part in activities including a sponsored car wash, treasure hunts, barbecues, raffles and even a boardroom table tennis tournament. In addition, many employees donated the day’s pay in the knowledge that they are supporting a good cause, with some wishing to match a salary sacrifice in favour of the charity.
James King, the partner responsible for corporate social responsibility said: “The commitment and the inventiveness of the staff has been amazing. Our target for the year is to raise £25,000 for the charity throughout the firm, and I’m delighted to see that we have almost reached that amount already, with more to come. This money will make a real difference to the work that Alzheimer’s Research UK does to try to find a cure.”
Jess Sayer, Regional Fundraising Officer at Alzheimer’s Research UK added: “Everyone should feel really proud of the enormous amount of money raised, and we’d like to say a big thank you to Price Bailey staff for their support . The money that has been so generously given by everyone at Price Bailey is enough to fund vital resources and equipment for our scientists, bringing new preventions, improved diagnosis and new treatments for this devastating condition ever closer.”
