Zest to support Dementia UK as its 2023 charity

by | Feb 6, 2023 | News | 0 comments

Timber garden furniture, grow your own and decorative garden structure specialist, Zest, part of the P&A Group, is to raise money for Dementia UK, the dementia specialist nurse charity, after a vote by employees to nominate it as the company’s charity of the year for 2023.

Dementia UK is the only charity that provides specialist dementia nurse support through its Admiral Nurse service.  Admiral Nurses provide life-changing support and guidance for families affected by all forms of dementia in communities, hospitals and hospices, on the free national Dementia Helpline, and in clinics.  Funds raised by Zest, and its P&A Group colleagues, will help the charity to reach more families facing dementia across the UK with the support of its Admiral Nurses.

Commenting on the announcement, Steve Morgan, Zest’s managing director said: “Raising money for charity is very important to all employees and this year they have voted to raise funds for Dementia UK. The charity’s Admiral Nurses do an amazing job supporting not just those living with dementia, but also support the wider family. We’ve already had a number of people sign up for a variety of different fundraising events. From bake sales, bingo nights and personal fitness challenges to fancy dress events, quiz nights, and dog walking days. There are lots of events to look forward to, including the Three Peaks Challenge for anyone who is feeling particularly adventurous! This year we have set a target of raising £10,000 for Dementia UK.”

Anna McNee, regional fundraiser for West Midlands and Wales at Dementia UK, said: “We’re thrilled that Zest has chosen to support Dementia UK for 2023. The company has raised so much money for charities over the years and we’re grateful for all the fundraising that will take place for our charity through lots of different and fun challenges.”  

Over the last 13 years, Zest employees have raised in excess of £145,000 for a variety of charities alongside colleagues in the P&A Group.  These include the British Heart Foundation, Macmillan Cancer Support, Hope House and Tŷ Gobaith Children’s Hospices, Cancer Research UK, Action for Children, Alzheimer’s Society, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and Meningitis Now.

Zest was established in 2005 to bring high quality, sustainable timber garden products to garden centres, online retailers, builders’ merchants, and major purchasing groups nationwide.  For further information about Zest’s timber GYO, decorative and furniture products, visit www.zestoutdoorliving.co.uk.
