Havebury raises over £150 for Alzheimer’s Society in Dementia Awareness Week 2016
Employees at Havebury Housing Partnership have taken part in raffles and Dementia awareness learning sessions this week, raising £151.00 for Alzheimer’s Society as part of Dementia Awareness Week 2016.
Dementia Awareness Week at Havebury has included employees attending lunch learning sessions to raise awareness of Dementia. The sessions entailed the five key messages set by the Alzheimer’s society as well as learning how to assist people with Dementia and the many different brain diseases that are included under ‘Dementia’. The sessions were extremely well received, leading to six people also becoming Dementia Friends after the delivery of the information.
Employees across the organisation have also taken part in a raffle this week which included a host of prizes such as Glasswells vouchers, tea at Harriets, home furniture and spa pampers. The raffle altogether raised £151.00, with the proceedings going to Alzheimer’s Society.
