Care home, hospital and community meals food provider Apetito has met its aim of raising £40,000 throughout 2015 for dementia charities a month early.

This year marks the first time Apetito has chosen charity partners and the total raised will be split between national charity, the Alzheimer’s Society, and locally based charity in East and West Wiltshire, Alzheimer’s Support.

Chief executive, Paul Freeston, said: “I’m very proud to announce that we have already reached our ambitious target of raising £40,000 for these charities, which do such important work on a local and national basis.

“As a company, we work very closely with older and often more vulnerable individuals, and want to show our commitment to the work that the Alzheimer’s charities undertake in making a real difference to society. 

“As our ageing population continues to grow, incidences of dementia are sadly likely to increase over the coming years, making the work they do more vital than ever.”

Staff from across the company got involved in 40 fundraising events throughout the year, which ranged from a Family Fun Day at Apetito’s Trowbridge headquarters, to a trek to Stonehenge, plus one intrepid team completed the Three Peaks Challenge.
