On 12th December, staff members across the Billington Holdings Group joined together to raise money for Alzheimer’s Society, with some seasonal silliness!
To get us in the mood, staff dug out their favourite festive knits from the back of the wardrobe and donated £1, those a little more daring went for the full-festive fancy dress hog with some fantastic outfits! The fancy dress competition was judged by our ‘bah humbug’ HR team.
In addition, this year we did something a little different in the form of a ‘Memory Tree’. Staff were encouraged to write their favourite memory on a tag and add it to the tree, paying a donation. There were some lovely Christmas memories of loved ones past and present, and it really brought home the meaning of Christmas.
Living with Alzheimer’s, or loving someone with Alzheimer’s is a tremendous challenge, but we hope that at this magical time of year, our donation will help in some small way to help.
All employees from across the Group were entered into an ‘all donations welcome’ prize draw, for the chance to win some fantastic prizes gifted by our generous clients and suppliers.
The pennies have been counted and we are happy to announce that we raised £600, for the Alzheimer’s Society!
So, from everyone at Billington, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a bright New Year!
