Alzheimer Scotland receives prestigious fundraising award
Posted 31 October, 2012
Alzheimer Scotland was delighted to receive a trophy at the Scottish Fundraising Awards last week, beating off stiff competition from Cancer Research and NSPCC.
The award, in the Corporate and Trusts category, recognised the success of our recent partnership with Tesco and Alzheimer’s Society, and was accepted by Corporate Fundraiser Gillian Messelink and Gloria Coats from Tesco.
‘We are honoured to receive this prestigious award and we would like to thank all the staff and customers at Tesco, our sister charity Alzheimer’s Society, and all our supporters who got involved in making the partnership and huge success.’
The partnership with Tesco has raised £7.5m UK wide. The money raised is enabling Alzheimer Scotland to fund the Dementia Community Roadshow, new Dementia Advisor posts, our e-Helpline and research.
