Thursday 13th June was the Alzheimer’s Society annual cupcake day. Each year across the country people come together to raise money and awareness over delicious baked goods!
The Great Care Company office in Louth, Lincolnshire joined in again this year to help raise money for the Cupcake Day charity event. Manager, Anne explained ‘we like to get involved in raising awareness for charities where we can, especially if it can include Staff and Service Users and bring everyone together.’
The team raised a fantastic £173.99 on the day for the Alzheimer’s Society's Cupcake Day, completely clearing them out of the cakes made by Anne's daughter. They held a guess the weight of the cake competition, won by a staff members daughter with a spot on guess of 6lb 3oz! Clients attended the event and were able to socialise amongst the team over the tea and cakes laid out for them.
Managing Director James, who also joined in with the fun at the event, said ‘we work closely with many different conditions and we hope to always do our best to get involved in raising awareness outside of the company too. Anne and the team have done a great job of arranging the event and making sure they could include as many people as possible. We’re proud to be able to do our bit to help and hope to take part in many more events in the future.’
