May I take this opportunity through your letters page to publicly thank everyone who works at the Lloyds Bank branch in Alnwick for their kind-hearted fund-raising efforts for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Thanks to the generosity of the team and their customers who took the cause of dementia to their hearts as the Alzheimer’s Society was adopted as a partner, £310 was raised for the charity by the Alnwick staff.
It is only with the support of people who kindly choose to hold fund-raising events such as the Lloyds Bank ‘Tea and Talk’ in December that we can continue to provide support services for people living with dementia and their carers in the community.
There are now almost 4,850 people who are living with dementia in Northumberland and the fact that figure will rise underlines why the support of people like the staff and customers at Lloyds means so much.
