Plymouth engineering firm, Applied Automation (UK) Ltd will be supporting Alzheimer’s Society throughout 2019.

It is hoped that staff will donate or get involved in various fundraising activities to help support a charity that helps fund research and supports people living with dementia.

Dementia is the UK’s biggest killer. Someone develops it every three minutes and there’s currently no cure. If a member of a family has dementia it can have devastating consequences. The gradual, but all too swift, decline in being able to carry out every day activities can be heart breaking for those affected and their family and friends.

Claire Frost, Devon & Cornwall’s community fundraiser for Alzheimer’s Society said: “Dementia is the biggest health challenge society faces today, with almost a million people living with the condition and many more partners, families and friends affected. We’re very grateful to Applied Automation for selecting Alzheimer’s Society as their chosen charity and we’d like to thank their staff for taking a stand against dementia and playing their part in funding ground-breaking research into the disease to improve dementia care and ultimately find a cure.”

Managing director of Applied Automation, David Rowe said: “I believe the work Alzheimer’s Society does is hugely valuable and one that affects so many people. I’m proud that Applied Automation and its staff will be supporting the charity this year. I hope we can make a real effort and in a small way, help to make a difference to those affected by this dreadful condition.”
