A Lindfield village club united against dementia to raise vital funds for well know charity.
The Lindfield Club, in King Edward Hall, has been hosting fundraising events throughout the year, and has raised £6,200 for Alzheimer’s Society.
Paul Turner, from the club who nominated the charity, said: “We decided to fundraise for Alzheimer’s Society because many of our members have either been affected by, or have a link with dementia.
“It’s great to think that we have raised funds to help support people to live well with dementia and to fund research to one day find a cure.”
Brian Williams, Alzheimer’s Society volunteer, accepted the cheque at a presentation on Saturday 24 November on behalf of the charity.
Alzheimer’s Society community fundraiser‘s Jess Hillicks for West Sussex and Surrey welcomed The Lindfield Club’s decision to boost the charity.
She said: “It’s great that members of the Lindfield Club gave up their time to support the Alzheimer’s Society. Dementia can happen to anyone and there is currently no cure. But with the right support, people can live well with dementia.
“As a charity, we rely on the generosity of individuals like The Lindfield Club to help us continue our vital work so that Alzheimer’s Society can continue leading the fight against dementia.”
