On the 13th June 2019, Coyle offices across the country took part in the Alzheimer's Society Cupcake Day. The Alzheimer’s Society is fighting to find a cure and provide support for people who are living with dementia. Dementia is the UK’s biggest killer and someone develops it every three minutes. The Alzheimer’s Society has found a lot of success through Cupcake Day, raising over £2.7 million since 2016.
Coyle employees took part by baking some amazing cakes and bringing them in for a huge bake sale. Our head office bake sale was a complete sell-out and nothing was wasted. We also held a raffle for the chance to win some amazing Apple AirPods and we put on the ever-popular 'Sweets in the Jar' competition to help raise money for a great cause.
We are delighted to announce that between our offices we were able to raise a total of £640, so congratulations to everyone that helped to raise this money. According to the Cupcake Day website, the amount we raised will pay for a Doctoral Training Centre to run for one day, which will help up to eight PhD researchers to carry out a groundbreaking study in dementia research.

Chloe, from our Chelmsford office, took part in a different kind of charity challenge in June in support of Concern Worldwide UK, who are tackling hunger and extreme poverty amongst the most vulnerable people in the world's poorest places. Chloe and her partner signed up to the Ration Challenge, where you have to go a whole week eating only the contents of a Syrian refugee ration pack. They raised nearly £250 for Concern Worldwide, and Chloe hasn't eaten rice again since.
