A huge congratulations to David Newcombe, who successfully completed the 102 mile Leicestershire Round this weekend. Due to good weather and pace, David was able to surpass expectations with a 29 mile stint on the first day, which helped when tackling an especially tough day 2. We would also like to thank everyone who contributed to making the four days possible, from support walkers to lift.

Alzheimer’s National Cupcake day came to Hörmann UK, with numerous staff offering baked goods for sale. We ran several activities alongside the cake sale, including ‘baby photo guess who’, ‘pin the cherry on the cupcake’ and ‘guess how many sprinkles’. This being the second time we have held a successful bake sale, we are hoping to repeat the event next year and make it an annual addition to our charity calendar.
