ERA, the Wolverhampton-based security company is lending its support to Alzheimer’s Research UK, having made the organisation its chosen charity for 2019, and has set a £10,000 target for the year.
CEO Darren Waters said: “As we do every year, we asked employees to vote for one of a selection of charities, and Alzheimer’s Research UK was the resounding choice for 2019. Most of us know someone affected directly, or indirectly, by this debilitating condition, so we are keen to do our bit and make a real difference. Since 2015, ERA has raised more than £50,000 for four charities and we hope to achieve a similar target for Alzheimer’s Research UK.”
Zoe Baggott, Regional Fundraising Officer for the charity, said: “We’re extremely grateful to their staff for backing our mission to bring about the first life-changing treatment for dementia. Over half of people know someone living with dementia, and we know that many staff at ERA will have felt the impact of the condition in their own families. Research can and will deliver life-changing preventions and treatments for dementia, and ERA’s support will be vital in powering groundbreaking research that could transform lives.”
