Alzheimer's Support showcased services at an event organised by corporate partner Apetito. In a series of workshops and taster sessions staff helped company team leaders understand 'why' and not just 'what' they do to support the charity's work. Needless to say therapy dogs Higby and Dave stole the show!

CEO Babs Harris said: "Manycompanies have ethical and community policies, but we have been struck by how Apetito really puts its values into play in the support they have shown to us over the past two years. This has included fundraising, particularly our Walk to Remember, providing the food for our Gala Dinners and sponsoring our first regional conference later this month. Now they are going a step further in the relationship, arranging for 23 of their Charity Champions to spend a day (not all at once) at our Mill Street Club. They will see at first hand how we work with people living with dementia and why our work, and their support, really matters.
