At Zurich we support and work alongside Alzheimer's Society, CLIC Sargent and Mind, all of which are wonderful organisations doing amazing work. This year we thought the money usually spent on promotional items for universities would be better used by these charities. We're asking you to choose where we should send our donations.
Simply enter your details and select which charity you’d like us to donate money to. The number of votes they are awarded will determine the amount of the donation each charity receives.
Every year, one in four people will experience a mental health problem. Mind campaigns to bring about long-term change, improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. Mental health problems can affect anyone: feeling alone, anxious, depressed or in the middle of a crisis, people too often struggle to get the care and support they need.
Mind believes no one should have to face a mental health problem alone. Their Infoline can provide a lifeline, listening and supporting people to make informed choices about their treatment and helping them find the support they need.mind.org.uk
Every year around 3,600 children and young people receive a cancer diagnosis. Treatment starts immediately and involves long stays in hospital, as well as regular out-patient visits, often a long way from home. Children and their families often face prolonged separation from family and friends. No area of the child’s or their family’s life will be unaffected, from the severe physical and emotional impacts of the disease and treatment, to the financial and social effects that accompany the situation.
CLIC Sargent have highly experienced, professionally qualified care teams in each of the 18 hospitals in the UK where children with cancer are treated.clicsargent.org.uk
Alzheimer’s Society provides over 2,000 local services for people with dementia and their carers, including support workers, information and advice. Their goal is to ensure everyone has access to quality dementia care.
Dementia is more than just memory loss, it is a physical disease that causes the brain to shut down, and robs people of their lives. It is the leading cause of disability in later life. Many people living with dementia experience isolation and depression, which often reduce the length of time people can remain in their own home.alzheimers.org.uk
