Hart Reade Presents Cheque to EDAA

Press Release

Eastbourne Dementia Action Alliance has been presented with a cheque for £1245.30 after a year of fundraising by Hart Reade.

The local law firm’s charity committee worked very hard to organise a number of events throughout the year to raise the funds. With generous donations from local businesses for their Christmas raffle, together with sweepstakes and charity pots, this year’s fundraising was a great success. The money will help to assist in the quality of lives of people with dementia and their families, friends and carers.

 Lynn Heaton of Hart Reade’s Charity Committee said, ‘We are always humbled by the generosity of Eastbourne businesses – their donations make a huge difference.’ 

 Head of Family Law, Alexandra Funnell said, ‘Taking part in fundraising for EDAA has been especially close to our hearts, with several of our staff members closely affected by dementia in their families. We were happy to support this charity and are proud of the funds we raised, knowing it will go to those who need it most.’

 EDAA Trustee, Stephen Lloyd, added: “On behalf of all the Trustees at the EDAA I am delighted to accept this kind donation from Hart Reade. It was a privilege for the charity that they chose us as their Charity of the Year in 2022. Our core objective is to make it just that little bit easier for those living with dementia and their families to know where to go in times of need. Such generosity helps us to continue providing this much needed service.”
