Bank of Ireland UK continues support for Alzheimer’s Society

  • Bank of Ireland UK has taken up a UK-wide Step Climb Challenge to raise in support of funds for their flagship charity partner, Alzheimer’s Society.

    More than 150 employees at the Bank of Ireland's head office in Belfast took part in a UK-wide fundraiser on behalf of Alzheimer's Society, with staff smashing their target of 68,000 steps. The partnership established between Bank of Ireland UK and Alzheimer’s Society began in March of 2017, and the company's support has now reached the £85,000 mark.

    The bank was recently named "Large Organisation of the Year" at the Dementia Friendly Awards and was a finalist in the "Uniting Against Dementia" and "Outstanding Contribution 2018" categories. The vital funds raised have supported the life-changing Side by Side programme, which actively promotes Dementia friendly communities and helps people with Dementia to live a high quality of life with the support of local volunteers.

    Alzheimer’s Society Services Manager Ciara Jemphrey thanked the bank for its support, saying: "We want to say a massive thank you to Bank of Ireland UK for truly uniting with us against Dementia through their ongoing support, awareness raising and fundraising efforts. Partnerships such as this will enable us to be here for everyone in Northern Ireland affected by Dementia."
