Prime sets new target of £250k by 2028, after hitting original £100k target in just 4 years of fundraising!

Our co-founder was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at just 50 years old. Without Margaret Locke's fierce intelligence and amazing drive, we would not be where we are today.

Fundraising total for Alzheimer's Society

£100K goal hit!

In 2018, Prime pledged to raise £100,000 in 10 years for Alzheimer's Society... We are so proud to announce we have collectively hit our £100,000 goal! Partnering with friends, our joint fundraising efforts for Alzheimer’s Society can be seen on our JustGiving team page, which showcases each of our missions. Why did we choose Alzheimer’s Society? Our co-founder, Margaret Locke, one-half of the dynamic power duo without whom none of this would be here, we’re doing this for her. At just 51, Margaret was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and it has been a real tragedy for everyone close to her to watch as this condition has progressed. A vibrant, passionate, fiercely intelligent woman, Margaret’s drive is what has got us here. With her passion for people and her creative vision, she is an amazing individual who we consider ourselves privileged to call not just a business partner, but our dear friend.

Memory walk 2022

Our most recent memory walk was such a success! We hosted our 3rd memory walk in partnership with Alzheimer's Society. Rallying the community spirit, over 50 walkers completed a 4.5 mile walk through Witham & Wickham Bishops, enjoying the beautiful sunshine and raising awareness for Alzheimer's Disease. As promised, Prime Appointments have doubled the amount raised totalling an amazing £4,000 raised! Thank you to all our walkers, donators and supporters 💙

£26k raised in 12 hours!

We are thrilled to have hosted our Alzheimer's golf day again! What an amazing day we have had raising so much money for Alzheimer's Society, using the fantastic Colchester golf club to host the event. After being postponed due to COVID, our golfers soon got into the swing. After lots of planning & prep, the event alongside our incredible auction prizes all came together to raise such an awesome sum of money. We are so proud to announce we raised an amazing £26,125!

Make a donation

Our goal is to raise as much awareness as we can for people with Dementia and Alzheimer’s. We’re raising necessary funds for the Alzheimer’s Society to help fund a cure, research & support services for our local community and the whole of the UK. Lets work together to help others. Every donation matters

Mission accomplished!

Our 2021 memory walk for Alzheimers Society received an overwhelming amount of support, with over 60 attendees joining us on the day, over double our first memory walk. Partnering with such an important fundraising society, we were able to raise an amazing £3,500 for Alzheimer's Society, in our mission to help support those effected by the disease both locally and across the UK. We couldn't thank you enough, to all that donated, took part in the walk & supported our event!

Challenge accepted, challenge complete

On the 17th of October 2020, 10 of our team took to the skies at Beccles airfield, Norwich. For our first ever challenge event. Our team ranging from 22-65 years old courageously met the challenge head on, facing their fears and completing the 13,000ft (2.4mile) high leap of faith for Alzheimers Society. Together this courageous team along with the support of our local community, clients, family and friends have raised an incredible £15,000 for the Alzheimer’s Society and counting, far surpassing their collective target of £4,000.
