Moving into 2019, our Trikwan Doctors put on our very first Annual Trikwan Charity Ball. Raising money for the charities Alzheimer’s Society and Dementia UK, our first Charity Ball was an incredible success raising £3000 for the charities and was a really enjoyable night for everyone involved. We had a magician, comedian, live music, a DJ and a professional dancer that were just part of the entertainment for the evening!
As a team we decided that a charity fundraiser would be a wonderful new challenge to start the year with, while raising money for two causes very close to our hearts. Both Dr Zoya and Dr Sanjay have first-hand experience working in Geriatrics and Psychiatry during their rotations at NHS Hospitals, and both doctors have seen the suffering caused by Alzheimer’s and other forms of Dementia.
These two charities, Dementia UK and Alzheimer’s Society were chosen for how they focus their resources in different ways to combat the effects of these conditions. We had representatives of both charities who attended and gave really informative presentations to help raise awareness of the amazing work both charities are doing.
Dementia UK focusses on directly helping families and relatives of those suffering with Dementia. They provide resources and support with gaining a diagnosis, understanding the different types of Dementia and on supporting a friend or relative suffering with the condition. On the other hand, Alzheimer’s Society focusses on funding the research that will go towards improving patient outcomes in the years to come. They cover several facets of Alzheimer’s research, including looking for a cure, improving care and diagnosis of patients, looking into disease prevention and furthering our understanding of the causes of Alzheimer’s Dementia. Both are fantastic charities that we are incredibly honoured to have worked with.
Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic meant that we had to postpone our plans for our Charity Work in 2020 due to social distancing requirements and our commitments to the NHS during the pandemic effort. However, once the pressures of the pandemic have lightened and we are able to return to some form of normalcy, we look forward to continuing our charity work.
Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has meant that, once again, we have had to postpone our plans for our Charity Work in 2021 due to social distancing requirements and our commitments to the NHS during the pandemic effort. However, once the pressures of the pandemic have lightened and we are able to return to some form of normalcy, we look forward to continuing our charity work in the coming years.
