Charitable staff at PSP Healthcare have put their best foot forward in a bid to raise money for BRACE Alzheimer’s research.
Volunteers from the innovative company which operates seven award-winning care homes and villages in the South West and Wales have taken part in the Bristol Half Marathon in September 2010 and to boost the funds they have already collected for the charity held raffles and sold christmas cards at local events in the care homes which have raised over £500.
Over the past few months staff from PSP Healthcare’s head office have been collecting well needed funds at different events they have been holding across the south west and at some of their seven care homes and villages.
Dedicated staff collected money at the popular Devon County Show. By walking around the show shaking a bucket with BRACE’s logo on they managed to encourage members of the public to part with their money while talking about the cause.
Operations director, Wayne Shermon, said: “I am very proud of my staff for pulling together to raise money for such a good cause and have enjoyed working with BRACE to help raise awareness for not only Alzheimer’s but also Dementia.
“We will continue to raise money over the coming months in aid of BRACE.”
