Our chance to give a little back
At Digital Automation we have recently decided to select a charity to represent as business. With a lot of discussion, we have decided to choose a charity that is close to our employee’s hearts. We plan to complete Fund Raising Activates within the business to raise money and awareness for this charity.
The Alzheimer’s Society covers all aspects of Dementia, by raising funds for this charity it will give towards their research into dementia care, cause, cure and prevention.
What is Dementia?
The word ‘dementia’ describes a set of symptoms that may include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. These changes are often small to start with, but for someone with dementia they have become severe enough to affect daily life. A person with dementia may also experience changes in their mood or behaviour.
Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged by diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease or a series of strokes. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia, but not the only one. The specific symptoms that someone with dementia experiences will depend on the parts of the brain that are damaged and the disease that is causing the dementia.
We plan to complete of first Fund Raising Event at the start of 2018 at the Tough Mudder Event in West London.
