trentbarton staff to back Alzheimer’s Research UK

trentbarton bus drivers and colleagues have chosen Alzheimer’s Research UK as their charity of the year for both 2022 and 2023.

Alzheimer’s Research UK is the UK's leading dementia research charity, dedicated to causes, diagnosis, prevention, treatment and cure.

trentbarton staff will spend two years on a wide variety of fundraising events and initiatives, including its Namesake programme where people can donate to have a bus named after a loved one.

Alzheimer’s Research UK topped the poll of trentbarton staff who chose from a shortlist of good causes drawn from nominations by colleagues and customers.

Alzheimer’s Research UK regional fundraising officer Naomi Walters said:

“We’re so grateful to trentbarton for supporting Alzheimer’s Research UK in 2022 and 2023.

“Dementia affects a significant proportion of the population – there are almost one million people living with dementia in the UK.

“Alzheimer’s Research UK have funded over £3.4m of pioneering research in the East Midlands, and fantastic support from businesses like trentbarton will help us to make life-changing breakthroughs for people with dementia.”

Caroline Bacon-Webster is one of trentbarton’s staff charity champions who organise fundraising. She said:

“We are all looking forward very much to fundraising for such an important charity.

“Most of us know people affected by dementia, and in particular Alzheimer’s, so I am sure our colleagues and customers will be both enthusiastic and generous in their support, so we can raise as much as possible for the charity’s vital work.”

In the past two years trentbarton colleagues and customers raised more than £5,800 for Teenage Cancer Trust.
