Crosby Sandwich Shop Raises Over £3,000 For Alzheimer’s Society

STAFF from Crosby sandwich store, Spoilt for Choice, raised £3,110 for Alzheimer’s Society after taking on the challenge of walking Pendle Hill in Lancashire in October this year. Rachael Pritchard and Toni Smith persuaded six of their colleagues and friends to tackle Pendle Hill in Lancashire to help raise funds for Alzheimer’s Society. Rachael also encouraged the local Crosby branch of Santander to support them in their efforts as well as customers of Spoilt for Choice through donations in collection tins in the shop. Rachael said: ‘Both mine and Toni’s families have been affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia through our grandparents and we wanted to give something back to help other people affected by this disease. We really enjoyed organising the walk and fundraising in the shop. We have even bigger plans for 2016 with a skydive planned! Alzheimer’s Society champions the rights of people living with dementia and the millions of people who care for them. I am very proud that all my fundraising efforts for the charity will help make a real difference.’ Joanne Dobbie, Community Fundraiser for Alzheimer’s Society in Merseyside, Cheshire and Isle of Man said: ‘We are extremely grateful to Rachael and all staff and customers of Spoilt for Choice and Julie Irvine at Santander in Crosby for all the time and energy they put into fundraising for Alzheimer’s Society.  As a charity, we rely on the generosity of individuals like Rachael to help us support people to live well with dementia today and fund research to find a cure for tomorrow’.
