Update: Following a very successful ‘Cupcake Day’ sale we are pleased to announce we have raised £78.09 for Alzheimer’s Society. Thanks to everyone who contributed and donated!

Thompson Smith and Puxon is pleased to be supporting Alzheimer’s Society  ‘Cupcake Day’ on Thursday 15th June. ‘Cupcake Day’ is a national fundraising campaign organised by the Alzheimer’s Society which aims to raise awareness about dementia by encouraging people to host cupcake sales at home and at work with all donations going towards research into the illness and local support services for people suffering with dementia.

Here at TSP we will be holding our own cupcake sale on Thursday with cupcakes baked or donated by staff on sale for a small donation. All funds raised from our sale will go to the Alzheimer’s Society. You can find out more about the Alzheimer’s Society here.

Alongside this fundraising event, two members of the TSP Wills and Estates team also support the Alzheimer’s Society in their role as Dementia Friends – Sarah White, Associate Solicitor in the Clacton-based Wills and Estates team and Pragna Chhagan, Wills and Estates Solicitor based at the Colchester office. The intention of the Dementia Friend scheme is for people to learn more about dementia and the ways in which they can help others and thereby create a more dementia-friendly community. Dementia Friends do not have to commit any particular time to the scheme, but the actions of a Dementia Friend could for example include visiting a person they know with dementia or telling people in the community about the scheme. You can read more about being a Dementia Friend in an article by Sarah White here.
