Linx staff raise £10,000 for Alzheimer’s charity

BIG-hearted employees at Linx Printing Technologies have raised £10,000 for Alzheimer’s Research UK after throwing themselves into a number of fundraising challenges.

As well as car washes, bake sales and raffles, 33 staff members took part in Cambridgeshire’s annual Chariots of Fire race, which involved running a 1.6 mile course in relay teams of six.

“Every year we donate to one main organisation that means a lot to our staff, and Alzheimer’s Research UK is a perfect example of this,” said Linx managing director Jose Gomez. “Almost all of us will be affected by dementia, whether directly or indirectly, at some point in our lifetimes. We are therefore extremely proud to have played a part in tackling it by organising all these events and activities.”

Holly Noon, fundraising officer for Alzheimer’s Research UK commented, “Linx has shown fantastic support for our charity, and we are extremely grateful for their contribution, which supports our aim to raise awareness of dementia and fund life-changing research.”
