Why I'm Collecting – Countdown Appeal 2018
- By Dementia Auckland
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. Are you in Auckland and interested in being a volunteer for people with dementia and Alzheimer's?
“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.”
Being part of our valued volunteer collector family enables Dementia Auckland to help people like Janet and Charles get the support they need. Last year our amazing volunteers raised thousands of dollars that provide much-needed keyworker support. That's why Janet's collecting – why will you?
Can you offer 2 hours of your time at your local Countdown across Auckland between June 28-July 1st? If you or anyone you know can collect, please get in touch with Courtney on or 09 551 2100.
