Zest are the print people and we like to put as much emphasis on the ‘people’ as we do on the ‘printing’. As a family business, we carry the ideals of supporting and caring for one another with us as we go about our lives.

Every year, we choose a charity to support and, this year, we have chosen to raise as much money as possible to support Alzheimer’s Research UK (ARUK).

ARUK is the UK’s leading research body into the effects and prevention of dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Various members of the Zest team’s families have been affected by dementia and Alzheimer’s over the years, so we know all too readily the effect these illnesses can have on both sufferers and their loved ones.

ARUK’s vision is a world free from dementia, and that’s certainly something we at Zest would love to see turned into reality.

We had a successful time at this year’s Jevington Fete, selling home-baked sweet and savoury rolls, and would like to extend our thanks to all who bought (and hopefully enjoyed!) our baked goods – it all went to a more than worthy cause.

We’re currently in the process of planning our next fundraiser – so if anyone would like to offer any help, or has any grand ideas to help us raise as much money as possible, please do get in touch with us on Twitter or Facebook.

There are currently 820,000 people in the UK suffering from varying degrees of dementia, which costs the country £23 billion a year – more than cancer and heart disease combined. In its effort to combat dementia, ARUK is funded by charitable donations – as little as £20 can help fund an hour’s research.

Compared to cancer, which currently has an estimated 28,000 researchers working for a cure, there are only 4,061 researchers working towards the ARUK dream of a dementia-free society.

Hope remains though, with more and more people using their heads and donating their brains to the cause – if you leave yours to Alzheimer’s Research UK, they can do wonderful things with it to fight the good fight.

I’m the business strategy person. I’ve worked in print for
almost 20 years so I know it inside out. For me, people
are the best thing about Zest, both my team and our
customers. I get a real buzz from helping customers to do
what they do even better.
