Local charity ADSS received a Christmas cheque of over £5,000 from various fundraising by Basepoint and match funding from The ACT Foundation.

Fundraising included a Winter Disco for ADSS and contributors to the charity, a sponsored walk and various other events.

Alzheimer's & Dementia Support Services is an independent registered charity, which has developed a wide range of multicultural services to provide practical and emotional support to people with dementia, their carers, supporters and other relatives. They work with the local community to raise awareness of the illness, promoting all available support.

As Basepoint is owned by The ACT Foundation, a leading UK grant making charity, each Basepoint Centre is dedicated to fundraising for a selected local charity and The ACT Foundation match funds any money raised for the chosen Charity, up to a maximum of £10,000.

Basepoint hopes that the charity will be able use some of this money to provided towards some festive entertainment for the visitors of their Garden Lodge Day Centre. We look forward to continuing our support to ADSS throughout 2016.
