We are delighted to announce that Portmeirion employees have voted to support Approach as one of their three charities for 2019/20.
Portmeirion will be supporting Approach by raising money through events, raffles, seconds ware sales in order to sustain our free carers services as well as contributing funds to allow us to purchase a new vehicle for use in our day opportunities groups.
We are thrilled to announce that Portmeirion have already raised an outstanding £1,400 for Approach. We were over the moon to accept a cheque for this staggering amount at this very early stage.
Portmeirion have also recently supported our Walk to Remember where a team of 20 employees joined us at Westport Lake in their fantastic orange t-shirts to raise further funds for our organisation.
We are also working hard to provide Dementia Friends sessions at the Portmeirion offices, factory, shops and distribution centre in order to create proud Dementia Friends across the organisation in North Staffordshire. It has been a pleasure to hold these sessions with the team and their engagement and feedback has been brilliant!
We are also completing audits on Portmeirion Stores in order to create dementia friendly and inclusive environments where people living with dementia can shop safely and comfortably.
We are all really excited about the coming year and what we will be able to achieve in partnership.
We would like to say a huge thank you to all employees at Portmeirion for selecting Approach as their Charity of the Year and their brilliant support and effort so far!
