Hall’s treats Alzheimer Scotland to Big Breakfast in Edinburgh
As part of Hall’s Scottish Breakfast week, which runs on 4th April until 10th April, Hall’s will be hosting charity breakfasts for Alzheimer Scotland in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee. On Friday 1st April Hall’s hosted a private breakfast for Alzheimer Scotland’s Day Opportunities group at the Lothian Early Onset Support Service. People with dementia and their carers welcomed Hall’s into their group where they enjoyed a breakfast of Hall’s sausage rolls. Henry Simmons, Chief Executive of Alzheimer Scotland said “This is a wonderful gesture from Hall’s and I know that local people with dementia and carers will greatly appreciate it. We aim to ensure that no-one feels they have to go through dementia on their own. Activities like this help to create a real sense of community, giving people the chance to share experiences and chat in a relaxed setting.” As part of the Scottish Breakfast Week campaign, Hall’s will also be fundraising for Alzheimer Scotland at the Hall’s Big Breakfast on the 9th April at Edinburgh Corstorphine Tesco store, where people are invited to come along and try Hall’s breakfast product for free and make a donation to Alzheimer Scotland, which with Alzheimer’s Society is Tesco Charity of the Year 2011.
