Welcome to the 2007 Sponsored Knit/Crochet for Alzheimer’s Society - Doncaster Branch

We are organising a sponsored knit/crochet during Alzheimer’s awareness week - 1st to 7th July 2007

We are looking for knitters and crocheters to help us raise funds for our branch.

Doncaster Branch of the Alzheimer’s Society is involved in providing support and information to people with Dementia their families and carers. We provide several services, which are:

1) Tandem Befriending Service – The purpose of this service is to provide respite care for carers and social outings for people with Dementia.

2) Dementia Cafes – These are social events offering support and information to people with Dementia and their carers.

3) Support Group – The support group is run to offer support and information for Carers of people with Dementia

4) Home Visits – To support Carers and People with dementia who may not be able to access other services.

5) Telephone Support

Caring for someone with Dementia can be an extremely lonely and frustrating time, so it is very important to let as many people know about the services available within Doncaster and ensure we have the money to continue to provide these services to people who need our help.

So this is how you can help us……

-Print out a sponsor form…
-Ask friend and family to sponsor you for an amount per square.
-During the week 1st to 7th July knit or crochet as many squares are you are able (the more the merrier but no amount is too small)
-Send your collected sponsor money by cheque payable to Alzheimer’s Society Doncaster Branch
