A devious Christmas quiz to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society. The charity is giving its full backing and support.
Alzheimer’s disease has become common throughout the country and probably you know someone, even maybe in your family, who is a sufferer. It affects the brain, causes dementia and has serious repercussions for those involved. The carers, often the spouses, have a difficult time and the Alzheimer’s Society provides much needed help and continues research into finding a cure
The quiz is sponsored by Barclays Bank PLC who are matching funding up to £750. It is also supported by the Rotary Club of Tiverton. Their support means that every penny you donate will go to the Alzheimer’s Society as all expenses and prizes are covered. I hope you enjoy the quiz with its dress theme and that you will enter the competition for prizes (totalling £100). There is even a random prize of £10, irrespective of score, drawn from all contestants after the first three prizes have been awarded.
This seemed the ideal way to try out the features on this new website and see if I can follow instructions. Like many others our cafe joined in this event earlier in the year, and maybe we couldn’t claim to Rock Against Dementia we certainly had a musical afternoon, from nursery rhymes, to, I am not how it would be classified,music played by a children’s band, a bit of line dancing and some community singing. All in all very enjoyable. We started with a lunch for our guests which was extended to the community and the carers of some of our regular guests. We raised a small amount in donations toward Alzheimer’s research.
