Fold Housing Association has presented the Alzheimer's Society Northern Ireland with a cheque for £30,000 following a series of fundraising events arranged by the organisation's tenants and staff. The cheque, which is the first to be presented as part of a two year corporate partnership, was raised through sponsored walks, marathon participation, coffee mornings, car boot sales, themed nights, bake offs and a gala ball. Fold has committed to becoming a Dementia Friendly Community by raising awareness about the illness throughout the organisation.
Pictured at the cheque handover is (L-R) John McLean, Chief Executive of Fold Housing Association, Elaine Dobson, PA to Fold's Chief Executive, and Richard Gilliland, Senior Regional Corporate Partnership Executive at Alzheimer's Society Northern Ireland.
