THE team from NMS Recruit have been putting their best feet forward to shine a light on the heartbreaking disease of vascular dementia.
Taking part in the Alzheimer’s Society’s sponsored Glow night walk through Liverpool’s docklands, they strode out to support the charity close to the hearts of recruitment consultant Lindsay Taylor and her family.
Lindsay’s mother Margy was diagnosed with vascular dementia four years ago at the age of 55.
Lindsay said: “Our family has received an amazing amount of help and support from the Alzheimer’s Society since my mum was first diagnosed with vascular dementia.
“There’s currently no cure but treatment can sometimes help slow it down by tackling the underlying cause. All we know is that it will get worse over time – and that’s why research is so important.
“We are so grateful to everyone who joined us on the Glow walk and to those who have donated to the charity so the fight to drive out this terrible disease can continue.
“This charity is very close to our hearts and every donation means so much to us all.”
NMS Recruit, part of the Russell Taylor group of companies, was joined on the 4.5km Liverpool Glow walk by Jennifer Scott, the group’s HR, Quality and Facilities Manager, and they raised a total of £735.
Lisa Carew, Operations Director at NMS Recruit, added: “The Glow walk was a great event and a fantastic way for all the team to get together and support Lindsay and her family by raising this huge amount for a very worthy cause.
