Alzheimer's Drogheda have two fundraising events coming up and they would very much appreciate your support. As everyone knows by now they have been fundraising for years to build a Day Care Centre at Greenhills so it is a very worthy cause.
The first event takes place next Friday 16th August in Holcroft Motors, as part of the Fleadh. It’s a showroom session featuring the Triskell Céilí Band, the Savage Family, Westmeath Comhaltas Group, traditional Irish singers and dancers and Uncle Tom Cobbley and all.
The Alzheimer mobile unit will be there from 1pm to 3-30pm so people can come and get advice and help from the Dementia Advisor for Louth Maeve Montgomery . This is a free event but any donations would be very welcome.
The second event is the Alzheimer annual soccer match which takes place on Saturday 31st August in the Drogheda United FC.
