St Vincent's Alzheimer Unit fundraising next week

The annual charity walk and bucket collection in aid of Alzheimer Services at St Vincent’s Hospital Athy will take place on 27/28 August, writes Mary Orford. The street collection will be on Saturday 27th with the associated walk taking place on the following day Sunday 28th.

All monies raised will go towards funding events and activities for the residents such as arts and crafts, mobile music, movie and book library, parties, singsongs, the gardening poly tunnel and the Christmas party.

Josie would be grateful for any support she receives — whether it's a donation to one of the collectors or joining in the sponsored walk.
