Production company employees have raised over £1,500 for charity by going for a lunchtime walk.
More than 30 employees at Amplicon in Brighton, a maker of industrial computers, volunteered to walk three miles twice a week to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society.
The walks were led by Gina Citroni, CEO of Amplicon, and her Jack Russell Pippa.
The team went down the South Downs and raised a total of £1,650 in October.
Megan Guy, fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Society of East Sussex, said: “We are so grateful to everyone at Amplicon for taking on their walking challenge to ensure people living with dementia in the county continue to have the support they need when they are they need it most.”
It is predicted that by 2025 there will be one million people living with dementia in the UK.
Ms Guy said: “There are 3,000 people living with dementia in Brighton and 26,500 people across Sussex and too many are dealing with it alone. We support people affected by all types of dementia through some of the toughest and scariest times.”
“Our amazing supporters, like Amplicon, are doing everything they can to raise important funds and awareness for people living with dementia. With their support, we can serve more people and, through cutting-edge research and influence, push for breakthroughs that will transform the lives of people with dementia now and in the future.”
