Alton bakes for Alzheimers Society
Thankfully, the Alton team is bursting with baking talent and they love nothing more than cooking up a storm to support their favourite charities.
This March, aprons were donned to raise funds for the Alzheimers Society, a charity that helps those with dementia. Dementia can happen to anyone and there's currently no cure. There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK and the number is set to rise to 1 million by 2021.
What the charity does
The charity believes passionately that life doesn't end when dementia begins. They are there for anyone affected by dementia, and do everything they can to keep people with dementia connected to their lives and the people who matter most.
Thank you to our customers
As is always the case, the community seemed to really enjoy the bake sale and helped the team raise some funds to donate to this worthy cause. Everyone from the store would like to say a big thanks to the residents of Alton...and we hope you liked our cooking too!
