It’s time for our Countdown Annual Appeal once again, which is coming up at the end of June. Each year, this appeal helps raise thousands of dollars for Dementia Auckland – donations which allow us to continue helping people with dementia across New Zealand’s largest city. 

A fundraiser as large as this one relies on the power of volunteers from all over Auckland. You don’t need superpowers to be our hero; just a couple of spare hours and a friendly smile can help raise the funds we need to keep going.

“My husband had vascular dementia and Dementia Auckland was wonderful. I so much appreciate and valued all the support and encouragement and information and understanding that we received while Charles was coping with the dementia. I’m more than happy to collect – it’s one way I can support the ongoing work that supports other people who find themselves in the same place we did.”

That’s why Janet is collecting – why will you?

If you or anyone you know can collect, even for a couple of hours, please get in touch with Courtney on or 09 551 2100.

We hope you've been making the most of summer (when it hasn't been raining!) and spending some time in the great outdoors.

We're anticipating some equally as lovely autumn weather in the near future and we'd love for you to join us for one more outdoor activity before you put those sneakers into hibernation – and of course it's all for a great cause!
 
 
Taking place on Sunday March 25th, Walk for Dementia is a free 5km walk from the gorgeous Mission Bay to St Heliers and back – the perfect opportunity for a stroll with family and friends.
 
Come anytime from 8.30 to get amongst the excitement, and stick around afterwards for even more fun. There will be refreshments and entertainment to enjoy in the fresh air with your friends and family – and plenty of opportunities to donate to Dementia Auckland, or challenge your friends or family to help you fundraise.
 
As well as the pride of fundraising for a great organisation, your support will mean that even more people affected by dementia in your community can access our services.
 

It’s free to sign up, so don't miss out – register with your family or friends now.

 

  A huge thank you to The Coffee Club Mission Bay for all their support – pop in and grab a coffee before your walk for a quick pick-me-up!

 

Do you have a bit of an inner drama kid? Has that artistic quality been passed down to your literal drama kids? Well, a 2018 Season Family Pass for Tim Bray Productions might be the perfect gift for you and your lovably dramatic family this year. With four productions over the course of this year, this pass allows two adults and two children to attend every single one. Tim Bray Productions is Auckland’s leading theatre when it comes to children (and children at heart, let’s be real), with their 2018 season kicking off with Pippi Longstocking. Treat your family to a year of the arts, it’s the gift that keeps on giving. 

 

A pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? How dull. We prefer the version where there’s roller coasters and go-carts instead. With two adult and two child Rainbows End Superpasses, you’ll have family fun day beyond sussed! Grab the kids on a bright sunny day, and get amongst the thrills, shows, and colourful fun that Auckland’s favourite theme park has to offer. With a Superpass, your whole family is entitled to unlimited rides all day long to ensure that optimum levels of fun are achieved, and you leave with a car full of sleepy eyes and smiling faces. 

 

Seeing Auckland from a car, boat, or bicycle is all fine and dandy, but you can only see so much from the ground (or water) level. Take inspiration from the birds and explore Auckland from the sky, with these two tickets for Auckland Seaplanes. These super cool seaplanes take off and land in the Auckland Harbour, and in between, will take you and one other person soaring through the air above the city and surrounding islands. So grab a friend or date that you’re excited to impress, and take to the skies to experience Auckland like you never have before. 

 

If you haven’t been to the Museum of Transport and Technology in Western Springs, Auckland (or haven’t been since you were in school), then we suggest you make this year your year to try it! With two family passes, both you and your kids will have friends to explore the fun and interactive museum with. Be transported back in time, take the tram, and learn all about the path that transport and technology have taken to get to where they are today. With Western Springs park close by, it’s a lovely chance to pack a picnic lunch with all your favourites and make a fun summer’s day out of it.
