Would you like to find out more about the fantastic Cognitive Stimulation Therapy course we ran recently for people with dementia? As one participant said: “We know that this is helping us, and to be able to put that on paper, to let people know about it, well, hopefully that will help others too.”

Click here to read all about CST (and the other activities we have coming up) in our latest newsletter.

World of WearableArt (WOW) has very generously donated two tickets to Dementia Wellington - for a chance to win these tickets all you have to do is donate in September...

As part of our Living Well With Dementia programme, we're delighted to offer a FREE six session yoga course starting in September for people with dementia and anyone supporting a person with dementia.

You probably know someone affected by dementia, either in your family or in your community. Will you fundraise for them in the Neon Night Run/Walk?

Thank you to everyone who attended our AGM last week. If you weren't able to make it, our latest Annual Report is available here.

Thank you so much if you have volunteered to collect for the Dementia Wellington Countdown Appeal. You will have your email confirmation with the times, day and site you are collecting. If you haven't (or if you have lost the email) please contact Kirsty on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we can confirm your collection time.

We understand that circumstances can change. If you are unable to collect at the times you specified, please call us urgently on 04 972-2595.

Collector Guidelines

  • Each site will be supplied with buckets, official collector's jackets, and stickers.
  • Supplies will be in a resource bag, and there will be a list of names of other collectors for that day and site with their times and contact details.

If you are the first collector at a site

  • You will find the buckets, stickers, vests, and information at the Service Desk of your collection site (unless you have been contacted by your Area Coordinator)
  • You will need to find a safe place to store the resource bag

Instructions for collecting

  • Please arrive five minutes before your start time
  • Introduce yourself to those collecting before you when you arrive
  • Locate the resource bag: It contains names of people taking over from you, and any site-specific health and safety instructions
  • Some supermarkets require collectors to sign in at the Information Desk – please check whether this is the case at your site
  • Please stay in the area where we have been given permission to collect
  • Wear your official collector's jacket and pass it onto the next collector
  • Have fun, and don't forget that every dollar raised goes towards helping local families

Thank you again for so generously offering your time to making our appeal a huge success. We couldn't do it without you!
