Quill raises thousands for Alzheimer's Society

October 2016

Quill staff Alzheimer's cheque donation

Quill staff have raised over £6,000 for the Alzheimer's Society

Wilton Centre-based payroll and bookkeeping bureau, Quill Pinpoint, has presented a cheque for £6,145 to the Alzheimer’s Society from donations generated from its recent Hadrian’s Wall fundraiser.

A regional representative from the Alzheimer’s Society, who attended a midday gathering on 5th October hosted in the Centre by Quill, expressed heartfelt gratitude for the donated monies.

Lucy King, Alzheimer’s Society Community Fundraiser, said: “We’re so grateful to all the staff at Quill Pinpoint for their generosity and support while completing the Hadrian’s Wall challenge.

"There are 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK alone with numbers predicted to rise to over two million by 2051. Alzheimer's Society provides information and support for people with all forms of dementia as well as those who care for them.

"We run quality care services, fund research, advise professionals, and campaign for improved health and social care, and greater public understanding of dementia.

"Support from companies like Quill Pinpoint helps ensure that this valuable work continues and we’re delighted they’ve chosen us to receive their fund-raised monies”.

Julian Bryan, Quill’s Managing Director, commented: “The staff at Quill are dedicated to giving back to the community whichever way possible. We’re also firm believers in supporting staff with disabilities.

"The former has seen us donate thousands of pounds to various charities over recent years; the latter has earned us the title ‘Employer of the Year 2016’ by the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

“We chose the Alzheimer’s Society as this year’s main beneficiary because it’s a charity close to our hearts. Although Quill's a young company - in terms of the average age of our employees - our workforce can relate to the cause because many of us have parents and grandparents with the disease which means we see for ourselves the devastating impact of this debilitating condition first hand.

"We're so pleased to have raised over £6k, and we’re thankful to our employees for their impressive fundraising efforts and everyone who sponsored us on our Hadrian's Wall walk.”
