GREGGS has given £1,089 to Dementia Friendly Keighley after holding events across the region last autumn, as the latest in the bakers’ ongoing series of donations to the charity.

Greggs retail operations manager Jeni Gerhardt called at the DFK office to chat with DFK administrator and volunteer Barbara Wood about the charity’s services.

DFK trustee Maggie Marsden said: “This is not the first time that we have received donations from Greggs and we are very grateful for their ongoing support. Jeni herself has also been very supportive to DFK, volunteering at our dementia fete and offering manpower to help us to refurbish our new premises.

“We hope to continue working closely with the company to help raise awareness and promote the work we do to support people living with dementia in the Keighley area.”

Jeni said the Greggs Foundation each year distributed around £3 million to charitable organisations in the UK, adding: “The teams at Greggs work together raising funds so they can make a difference to people in need in the heart of Greggs’ local communities.”
