Dementia Australia will be collecting donations across the country for National Collection Day, a flagship fundraising event to be held on Thursday 20 September 2018 to mark Dementia Awareness Month.
Dementia Australia’s Executive Director, Business Development, Leanne Emerson said last year’s Collection Day raised more than $17,000 in Sydney thanks to the dedication and unwavering support of our volunteers.
“This year we are expanding our collection sites to other cities including Adelaide, Brisbane and Melbourne,” Ms. Emerson said.
“The donations collected are used to support a wide range of services for people living with dementia, their families and carers with all forms of dementia.
“These services provide a crucial part of the work that Dementia Australia undertakes on behalf of more than 425,000 people living with dementia, their families, carers and friends,” Ms. Emerson said.
