Alzheimer’s Society People Awards

Whetman Pinks is delighted to have attended the Alzheimer’s Society People Awards held at St. James’ Palace.

The awards were presented by HRH Princess Alexandra, the Royal Patron of Alzheimer’s Society.

Whetman pinks is proud to have been able to send more than £25,000.00  to Alzheimer’s Society which was raised over the year since the launch of the stunning new Dianthus ‘Memories’ in 2012.

The original hoped for target was £15,000 but thanks to invaluable commitment by Bransford Webbs, Homebase and generous donations from many of our customers, this target has been far exceeded.

Alzheimer’s Society informed us that:

…the income we have received from the sales of the Dianthus Memories plants is supporting a major study that Alzheimer’s Society is funding, into a drug called Liraglutide.

This is a drug which is currently being used to treat people with diabetes.

This major drug development study will tell us more about the effects of Liraglutide on Alzheimer’s disease.

It is a particularly exciting area of work and you can read more about it at the Alzheimer’s Society website.
