Charity of the Year 2024 – Alzheimer Scotland

On behalf of the whole team here at Thomson Cooper, we are delighted to announce that Alzheimer Scotland has been voted our 2024 Charity of the Year. The charity was chosen following a recent vote by everyone at Thomson Cooper.

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.

Our fundraising activity started with a Valentines Day ‘Bake Off’ that raised £225. As you can see, our creative crew went all out and delivered this magnificent spread!

Next up, a team of 7 brave Thomson Cooper employees are facing their fears by taking on a 100ft abseil at the Falkirk Wheel on Friday 15th March.
