During 2018 we raised almost £65,000 for local charities, with more than £57,000 donated to the Rosemary Appeal, Dialysis and Cancer Care for West Berkshire, which was our nominated charity for 2017-2018.
For 2019, we have chosen the West Berkshire Dementia Action Alliance as our main charity and will be planning several fund raising events during the year.
Their website is at:

- Establishing and maintaining effective support through signposting and information sharing networks
- Ensuring that the voices of people with dementia, their carers and families are heard and guiding the work of the West Berkshire Dementia Action Alliance
- Raising awareness of dementia across local communities
- Encouraging the whole community to become Dementia Friends
- Working towards necessary improvements to enable people with dementia and their carers to live independently in their community for as long as possible
