Dementia charity thanks GatewayClub for members' generous donation
Carrickfergus Senior Gateway Club has presented a cheque for Â£1,418 to the Dementia NI charity.
The sum was raised through a karaoke evening organised by the Gateway Club on September 19.
The cheque was presented to Fionnuala Savage from Dementia NI.
Fionnuala said: “Each and every day, Dementia NI staff and members are overwhelmed by the support of individuals and groups right across Northern Ireland.
“The Gateway Club held a karaoke night for Dementia NI and had a singing success raising a phenomenal amount of money for Dementia NI.
“We cannot thank you enough for every generous donation, energy and enthusiasm you show in making a difference for people living with dementia.”
Dementia NI was established in 2015 to “provide a voice for people who are living with a diagnosis of dementia and to reach out to others who have dementia”.
The group aims to support people living with dementia to lobby and raise awareness of dementia.
