Back in 2018 when Alan Dowthwaite, managing director of Avansa chose Alzheimer’s Society as the company’s charity of the year it hit a chord with Commercial Director Jenny Arnot.
Jenny lost her mum to dementia in 2017 and the company’s Sue Gater lost her nan the same year. Therefore people at Avansa had a personal connection with the cause.
The team came up with the idea to share their favourite recipes, and the fund raising began with cake sales and raffles. They approached clients and offered them an opportunity to sponsor a recipe featuring their brands to help. The support they received enabled the production of Unforgettable Recipes, a collection of recipes from Starters to Mains through to Puddings and Cocktails that you will love.
Dementia is a cruel and merciless illness causing terrible suffering and distress, not only for the person with dementia but to the family and friends around them.
Since it’s publication in 2018 the book sales have raised over £15,000 for the Alzheimer’s Society.
