GRG Waste UK raises over £9k for Dementia UK


A national waste management group has raised more than £9,000 for Dementia UK following their third annual charity gala.

Employees and customers of GRG Waste UK were welcomed to the fabulous Las Vegas Nevada and took part in various fundraisers throughout the evening, including a live auction, silent auction, lucky dip, and casino games, alongside fabulous live entertainment and delicious food.  

They had initially set a fundraising target of £5,000 for the charity event, however, their efforts exceeded expectations by raising a total of £9,036.13. This brings GRG Waste UK's total fundraising to over £30k for charitable causes over the last three years.

The company fundraise for a different charity every year, and GRG Waste UK staff voted for Dementia UK as the charity they would most like to support for 2023.

Francine Collis, Group Marketing Manager at GRG, organised the event and said: “I’m incredibly proud of the efforts our colleagues and customers made in supporting this fundraising campaign.

“Many of us will know someone whose life has been impacted by Dementia. So, we’re delighted that we’ve been able to help Dementia UK continue their vital work to support people living with dementia.”
