You may know by now that, at Iconic Resourcing, we believe in giving back. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Alzheimer Scotland as our charity partner.
All of the Iconic employees have had personal experience with dementia and Alzheimer’s at one time, so it’s a cause that means a lot to us.
In September, both Hannah and Lauren took part in the Glasgow half-marathon, and raised £570 for the charity.
That’s why we’d like to tell you about some of the amazing work that Alzheimer Scotland do, especially at this time of year.
Bringing Comfort this Christmas
As the festive season approaches, we at Iconic Resourcing will be looking forward to taking a well-deserved break and enjoying festivities with loved ones. But for Alzheimer Scotland, services need to keep running every day of the year to make sure no one faces dementia alone.
Christmas time can be confusing, lonely and isolating for many of the 93,000 people in Scotland living with dementia. Cold weather, dark nights, disrupted routines and less access to public services can be overwhelming.
They need your support so that we can reach people at a time when they are at risk of being forgotten. Alzheimer Scotland provides a lifeline for carers and family members who are struggling to cope, and they rely on donations to keep services running 365 days a year.
For example, tireless volunteers continue to offer advice and emotional support on the 24/7 Freephone Dementia Helpline (0808 808 3000) which families can call anytime, even on Christmas Day. Just £10 pays for one hour of calls.
By donating to Alzheimer Scotland’s Freephone Dementia Helpline (0808 808 3000) this Christmas, you can help people living with dementia when they need it most.
