F & P Wholesale names Alzheimer’s Society as its new charity

Published:  10 February, 2016

F & P Wholesale, Primaflow & Connections (FPC) has announced it will be supporting the Alzheimer’s Society as its chosen charity partner for 2016 and 2017.

The charity, which offers support and advice for those caring for someone living with dementia, as well as much needed research into treatments, prevention and a cure for the illness, was voted for whole heartedly by employees who will now get to work on a wide range of fundraising activities.

Already in the calendar is the FPC 2016 Bike Ride in September, which aims to be bigger and better than ever this year. Covering over 140 miles, it will see a team of cyclists tackle a range of terrains as they travel between some of FPC’s biggest locations.

Jed Kenrick, managing director at FPC said: “We are delighted to be able to offer our support to such a worthy cause. Dementia affects over 850,000 people in the UK; this figure is expected to rise to 1 million by 2021, with no cure currently available. Through their tireless work, the charity aims to make sure being diagnosed doesn’t mean life has to end, by providing the best support possible for people living with dementia and carers alike. We hope our fundraising support will go some way to helping further the valuable research into finding a cure, and the care so many rely on can continue.”
