Food ingredients supplier, Brusco Food Group, has raised a total of £4,875 for charities including Alzheimer’s Society, The Circuit – a national network of defibrillators, Mind UK and Acorns Children’s Hospice.

In July 2023 Brusco’s Managing Director, Andrew Ashby, challenged his team to turn a £20 note into the most money they possibly could for their chosen charities. From there, fundraising activities included bake sales, fancy dress days, raffles, tombolas, connect 4 tournaments and a highly popular bingo event.

Brusco raised a total of £2,152 for Alzheimer’s Society, £785 for The Circuit’s Defibrillator Appeal, £538 for Mind UK and £400 for Acorns Children’s Hospice. Brusco added to the charity funds raised with another £1,000 for Alzheimer’s Society, bringing the total raised to £4,875.

Andrew Ashby, Managing Director of Brusco Food Group, said: “We’re so proud to give back to such worthy causes through our charity fundraising activities. It’s been a fantastic team effort from everybody at Brusco and we’d like to thank all of the businesses that we’ve spoken to through our fundraising activities, we’ve had some amazing donations from many local and national companies.”

Adam Evans, Alzheimer’s Society Community Fundraiser, said: “We are so grateful for the incredible £3,152 Brusco Food Group have raised for Alzheimer’s Society. Each hour people generously give to fundraise for us, every event they take part in, every pound they donate, they’re making a life-changing difference to people living with dementia. 

“Alzheimer’s Society provides vital support to people living with dementia, funds groundbreaking research and campaigns to make dementia the priority it should be. Together, we will end the devastation caused by dementia.

“There are over 900,000 people living with dementia in the UK. But we simply can’t reach everyone without the continued support of our incredible fundraisers like Brusco Food Group.”

Brusco’s charity fundraising was created in line with the company’s 4 key values, to be: Curious, Brave, Inclusive and Responsible. These values play an important role in everyday life at Brusco and is one of the main reasons for success at every level of the business.
