On Friday 15th March our brave Thomson Cooper colleagues faced their fears and took on the 100ft abseil challenge from the Falkirk Wheel. This endeavour was undertaken to raise funds for our Charity of the Year 2024 Alzheimer Scotland. All seven participants completed their abseil raising an incredible amount of just over £3,000, doubling their original target of £1,500. Thanks to the 100+ supporters who made donations.

Partner Mark Gibson, who was one of the participants said, “It was an amazing experience for a great cause. Thanks to everyone who supported the team in the build-up to the challenge, resulting in all 7 team members going over the edge and completing the abseil.”

The aim of Alzheimer Scotland is to make sure nobody faces dementia alone. The organisation provides services and support across Scotland to help anyone who is worried about their memory, has a diagnosis of dementia, or who is supporting someone with dementia.

Alzheimer Scotland provide information and advice, peer support and personalised support services (including day opportunities, activities or groups) in local communities through a network of Dementia Advisors, Community Activity Organisers, Dementia Resource Centres, and a freephone 24 hour Dementia Helpline.
