Greg O'Shea with staff and supporters of the Alzheimer Society of Ireland at the launch of the charity’s annual nationwide Flag Day collection Alzheimer’s Memory Ribbon campaign.
Love Island winner and professional rugby 7’s player Greg O’Shea is encouraging members of the public to support The Alzheimer Society of Ireland’s annual nationwide Flag Day collection Alzheimer’s Memory Ribbon which is taking part in every county in Ireland on Thursday, November 21st.
The new ambassador for The Alzheimer Society of Ireland is backing the campaign which asks the public to share treasured memories of their loved ones affected by dementia while donating to this worthy cause. Dementia is something which is close to Greg’s heart after his nana passed away with the condition only recently.
By sharing a memory and donating €3 to the charity, members of the public can give a gift that will change lives as every donation made will go directly towards providing vital services to people living with dementia and the loving families who support them.
The Love Island Winner is encouraging members of the public to get involved and there are two ways to do this: buy a Memory Ribbon pin from one of our staff members or volunteers around the country on Thursday, November 21st or become a volunteer for an hour on the day.
