The Alex Pearce Memorial Fund

Alex Pearce

Best Employers was born out of a collaboration between Alex Pearce, Managing Director of eras ltd and Lynn Walters, Executive Director of Pure.

Alex very sadly and unexpectedly died in October 2020, and to mark his legacy, we have chosen to raise money in his memory.

50% of the proceeds raised through our 2021 programme will be donated to Winston Wishes and Nelsons Journey.
