Our chosen charity 2021
Each year at BWP we select a charity to support through a range of different fundraising activities. This year, we have chosen to work with Alzheimer’s Society, a charity that is close to many of the hearts at BWP.
Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading dementia charity. They work to further research into the illness as well as providing life-enriching support for those living with or caring for people with dementia.
You can find out more about Alzheimer’s Society here.

"Dementia is the UK’s biggest killer. Someone develops it every three minutes and there’s currently no cure. We know it is scary facing up to it, but we must confront the biggest health and social care challenge of our time. Thanks to your support, Alzheimer’s Society is facing dementia head-on. Whether you’re a fundraiser, donor, partner, or affected by dementia in any way, we’re working with you to build a movement. Inspired by your voices, we’re leading the way in support, society and research. We are calling on everyone to unite. Working together we know we will achieve our vision - a world without dementia."-Alzheimer’s Society
We’ll be holding lots of special events throughout the year to raise vital funds for Alzheimer’s Society, so watch this space. To ramp up the fundraising and get the whole company involved, we’ve committed that, as a team, we will walk, run, cycle, swim and even sashay a total of 7,000km by the end of World Alzheimer's month in September. Why 7,000 you say? It is to represent the 7,000 people local to BWP who suffer from Alzheimer’s.
To keep up with our progress, visit the BWP Just Giving page where we’ll be posting updates, as well as our Instagram for the visual evidence. It will definitely be worth a look when the photos emerge following team participation in Tough Mudder, the Colour Run and the Inflatable Run, as part of this ongoing challenge.
Please consider donating to help us help Alzheimer's Society in transforming the landscape of dementia forever.
