Portfield chose the charity Dementia Support as Dementia comes in so many forms and impacts on so many people’s lives both young and old. Portfield have donated £7,000 and pledge to fundraise a further £3,000 throughout the year. Dementia Support aim to embrace all aspects of dementia and support the local community by bringing together local dementia services under one roof.
Perry Lee, Managing Director of Portfield says; “The Dementia Support Hub in Tangmere really could become a super facility supporting those that really need it. The efforts of all those involved is positively enlightening and invigorating. We want to do as much as we can to help raise the awareness of the great work they are doing and help their profile in the local area.”
Sabine Margarson, Dementia Support Project Director says; “As a local charity Dementia Support are delighted that Portfield selected us as their Charity Partner. The team at Portfield have been incredibly helpful with our Office Furniture Donation Collections to date and made a substantial furniture donation to the Hub. We look forward to working together on local fundraising events to promote dementia awareness in Chichester and the surrounding areas”.
