Maximus Foundation UK has provided Alzheimer’s Society with a grant of £2,500 to continue providing support to people affected by dementia.
The charity provides helplines, information and guidance for people with dementia, their carers and family members in Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire.
The donation forms a part of the Foundation’s dedicated fundraising to help local charities nationwide affected by the COVID-19 crisis. The grant was awarded via a virtual cheque presentation by a Maximus Foundation trustee.
Di Briggs, Chair, Maximus Foundation UK, said:
“Many small charities across the UK face the challenge of resuming their normal activities after a very difficult period. So we’re delighted to help Alzheimer’s Society to continue their amazing work providing support to people affected by this condition”.
Julie Lee, Community Fundraiser, Alzheimer’s Society, said:
“Coronavirus has shattered the lives of so many people living with dementia, and our support is now more essential than ever. The grant from Maximus Foundation UK will help us to continue vital services for people living with the condition, for instance Welfare and Companion calls to people at risk of loneliness or isolation”.
