Baxi Heating employees have baked, run, cycled and dressed up to raise money for charity partners Alzheimer’s Society and the Alzheimer Society of Ireland.
Colleagues from Baxi Heating’s UK and Ireland manufacturing and office sites have taken part in many different activities to help the charity over the past 18 months – raising a total of £42,670.
Hayley Woodyatt, senior regional corporate partnerships executive at the Alzheimer’s Society, said: “Baxi Heating’s achievements over the last 18 months are a testament to all their colleagues. They have been innovative with their ideas and have kept people affected by dementia at the heart of everything they do. They have also made great efforts to raise awareness of dementia by rolling out Dementia Friends across their organisation.”
Heading up the corporate social responsibility activities for Baxi is Maureen Tallis (pictured right), who presented Ms Woodyatt with the latest cheque for £16,940.
Ms Tallis said: “As a business, we recognise that it is important to give back to the communities in which we work. Our people arrange and take part in fundraising activities at each of our sites and we never cease to be amazed at their dedication and the variety of their schemes. Our Norwich colleagues organised a circus, complete with big top and ringmaster, while others have cycled hundreds of miles or organised bake sales to raise money.”
