New Year’s Resolutions…

Robert is the Sales and Marketing Director at Cogent Technology, responsible for areas such as strategic change and development.  In 2015 he will be cycling from London to Paris in just 3 days to raise money for West Suffolk Hospital because of the ones that forget and the families that cannot!

There are many reasons why Robert is doing this challenge; personal health, a sense of achievement and to give something back.  Whilst focusing on the process of continuous improvements which has been taking place within Cogent Technology, looking at how the business could improve and give more value to their services worked so well he has applied the same logic into his personal life, having become more lean and productive to society by losing 3 stone – hence now taking part in this cycle challenge.

Robert’s charity and why –

There are many diseases that can strike down mankind, when this happens to a loved one, families console each other through the art of conversation with loving words which seem to bring some inner peace to both sides, in being able to talk around the dark days ahead and what the future holds for all going forward.

However, with dementia this element is stolen from families; therefore, the sharing around the emotion of the illness with your loved one is not possible. As a result of this the impact on the carer themselves is profound and can be so hard hitting.

Robert’s mother-in-law has dementia, so he is acutely aware of the impact this has on close family.  It is with this in mind, that he looks to help families by raising money in support of running the new day room at West Suffolk Hospital, Ward G4, which opened in Sept 2014. This day room is offering comfort, away from the traditional wards, for families to come to terms with this dreadful disease and its impact on normal family life.
“For the person they have lost and the loved one they care for”
