It was a day which separated us from our daily work and allowed us to adopt a different mindset. Apart from the team-building benefits, the hack day helped us to think outside the box and get creative with our thought processes.
The Care Sector Fundraising Ball 2018 raised a grand total of £140,000 for Alzheimer’s Research UK and the Care Worker’s Charity.

BOGOF! Super Special Mega Offer!, More Reasons To Shop At… All things that you would possibly associate with high street grocer Morrisons. But care provision? That’s hardly something you’d expect to pick up in aisle four next to the self-raising flour.
