Ladies (and Men) in Red Boost Taylor&Emmet Charity

Visitors to Sheffield’s Taylor&Emmet LLP could have been forgiven for seeing red on Friday, as employees donned their best rosy attire for a special Valentine’s themed dress down day.

Staff at the firm’s four offices made an extra special sartorial effort to show how much they love raising funds for their annual charity, the local Alzheimer’s Society.

The combined endeavours of employees at Taylor&Emmet’s Arundel Gate, Ecclesall Road, Dronfield and Bakewell branches brings the total raised to help people and carers living with dementia to £480 in just six weeks.

A raffle held at the firm’s annual dinner last month kicked off Taylor&Emmet’s fundraising in style, adding £350 to the kitty, thanks to prizes donated by local businesses, including afternoon tea for two at Andrew’s Café Tea Rooms and a spa day with treatments at the Clumber Park Hotel near Worksop.

Claire Fletcher, Taylor&Emmet’s marketing coordinator, said: “I’d like to thank everyone who threw themselves so enthusiastically into our Valentine’s dress down day and spread a little love for our annual charity. We have made an excellent start to this year’s fundraising and we aim to keep the momentum going, through a series of entertaining and energetic challenges.”

Alzheimer’s Society provides practical services and essential contact for families coping with dementia.
