HAYS ANNOUNCE NEW UK CHARITY PARTNER - ALZHEMIER'S SOCIETY

Following a staff vote, Hays UK, the leading recruiting expert, has announced that its new charity partner is Alzheimer’s Society. Hays employees will spend the next year raising money in a number of ways, including various sporting challenges, from Memory Marathon walks and runs, national fundraisers where consultants pay to dress casually to quiz nights, raffles and cake sales. Hays has also agreed to match employees’ fundraising efforts by up to &pound40,000 at the end of the year.

Alzheimer's Society is the leading support and research charity for people with dementia, their families and carers. There are 750,000 people with dementia in the UK and numbers are set to rise to one million by 2021. The Society's fight for a better world for people with all types of dementia takes a wide range of forms. Through a network of local services, the Society provides practical services and support for people with dementia and their carers. 

Charles Logan, Director at Hays says: “We’re delighted to be supporting Alzheimer’s Society in providing vital information and critical support to thousands of family carers who have been affected by dementia. We raised over &pound280,000 for our last charity partner, Action for Children, through quiz nights, cake sales, dress down days and a recent trek in Kilimanjaro. We always aim high and look forward to helping raise money over the course of the year for Alzheimer’s Society.”

Jeremy Hughes, Chief Executive at Alzheimer’s Society comments: “We’re thrilled that Hays chose us as a new charity partner. Alzheimer's Society is the leading dementia charity and partnering with Hays will help us move one step closer to defeating dementia. Anyone can get dementia and the numbers are increasing. There will be over 1million people with the disease in ten years time.  The money that we raise makes a real difference to people with dementia and their carers and we are so pleased to have Hays supporting us in our efforts.”
