Puzzles to Remember
Nestlé UK and Ireland donated over 350,000 pounds to their Alzheimer's Society. Nestlé chose the Alzheimer's Society as their "Charity of the Year, 2011".
For the past 12 months, Nestlé UK and Ireland's employees have conducted many fundraisers. These have included bicycle challenges, marathons, quiz nights, football tournaments, raffles, and treasure hunts. Some even participated in a sky dive!
Paul Grimwood, CEO and Chairman of Nestlé UK and Ireland, said:
"I am proud that Nestlé employees have smashed our target. The money will help fund the Alzheimer's Society's National Dementia Hotline and valuable research into finding the cause and a cure for dementia which affects over 750,000 people in the UK."
