Brogan Group supports Alzheimer's UK!

 

Did you know that in the average time it takes to bake a batch of cakes, six people in the UK will develop dementia? It is now the leading cause of death in England and Wales, overtaking both cancer and heart disease.

We held a Cupcake Day at head office last month in order to raise some money to combat Alzheimer’s. Brogan Group are always looking for fun ways to involve employees in raising money for different causes throughout the year, such as the Race for Life that Brogan ladies run annually and Christmas Jumper Day.

Although Alzheimer’s Cupcake Day was on the 13th June 2019, that doesn’t mean that you can’t still fundraise or donate to the amazing cause.
