Zest Smashes Charity Target in Support of Dementia UK
Garden furniture, grow your own and decorative garden structure specialist, Zest has smashed its £10,000 charity target raising money for its chosen 2023 charity Dementia UK, the specialist dementia nurse charity.
It presented Anna McNee, Dementia UK Regional Fundraiser, with a cheque for over £19,000 at The Woodworks Garden Centre, in Mold, Flintshire, which like Zest is part of the P&A Group, during the company’s Christmas get together.
The money was raised via a series of fundraising challenges throughout the year. Highlights included the Three Peaks Challenge, plus a fun charity quiz night, bake sales, dress up your pet, raffling Christmas and Easter hampers which included items donated by employees, and a charity yard sale of Zest products.
Commenting on the fundraising total, Steve Morgan, Zest’s Managing Director said:
“This year, employees have really thrown themselves into fundraising for Dementia UK. We’ve had a range of events throughout 2023 in which everyone could get involved – from fun fundraising evenings out to grueling physical challenges.
Year after year, I am amazed by how much money we raise for our annual charities.
I’d like to say a massive thank you, firstly, to all our employees for taking part so wholeheartedly and, secondly, to customers, suppliers and friends who donated so generously.”
Anna McNee, Dementia UK Regional Fundraiser for West Midlands and Wales added:
“We’re absolutely thrilled with the amount raised for Dementia UK this year. This money will help us to reach more families facing dementia across the UK through the support of our Admiral Nurses. We are all incredibly grateful for the employees’ combined efforts and can’t thank them enough.”
Dementia UK is the only charity that provides specialist dementia nurse support through its Admiral Nurse service.
Admiral Nurses provide life-changing support and guidance for families affected by all forms of dementia in communities, hospitals, and hospices, on the free national Dementia Helpline, and in clinics.
Funds raised by Zest will help the charity to reach more families facing dementia across the UK with the support of its Admiral Nurses.
Over the last 13 years, Zest employees have raised in excess of £145,000 for a variety of charities alongside colleagues in the P&A Group. These include the British Heart Foundation, Macmillan Cancer Support, Hope House and Tŷ Gobaith Children’s Hospices, Cancer Research UK, Action for Children, Alzheimer’s Society, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and Meningitis Now.
