Alzheimer’s Tea Day
Carnew Resource Centre
Mill Lane
Thursday 1st May, 2014
11am – 2pm

All over Ireland, people whose lives have been touched by Alzheimer’s are counting on the money raised on Tea Day. The funds raised provide social clubs for people with dementia and their families and friends.

These are safe havens in a world that has been turned upside down – places where they can meet, chat, get information and share experiences with others who know what they are going through. Services such as the National Helpline (1800 341 341) would simply not be possible without your much needed help.
