WORLD ALZHEIMER’S DAY
World Alzheimer’s Day is on 21 September and
Alzheimer’s Australia NSW will once again take
over Sydney train stations to raise funds to support
dementia services, education and research.
Our loyal band of volunteers will be taking donations
at train stations throughout the day, with a goal to
raise even more than the $8000 raised last year. So
if you’re a Sydney commuter and you see a volunteer
asking for donations, please make sure you dig deep.
Are you keen to volunteer? It’s not too late.
Or if you prefer to raise funds through your
workplace or in your local community, we can
help. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information on how you can volunteer
and get involved.

HOST A THINKO! NIGHT
We know that brain health is serious business, but
keeping your brain in top form can also be fun.
This Dementia Awareness Month, why not host a Thinko!
night with your friends, family or work colleagues. We make
it so easy for you – all you have to do is decide if you prefer
trivia or games, then choose topics that your team will enjoy
... then we send you everything you need. It’s that easy!
Doing Thinko! this September is a great way to give
the people you love a full brain workout, and it’s also a
fun way to show your support to Alzheimer’s Australia
and the work done to support people with dementia,
their loved ones and carers. Why not ask your friends to
bring a dish each and donate what you would have spent
on a night out together instead? Or you could charge
people a fee if they want to cheat on a trivia question.
However you decide to do your Thinko!, we’ll be here to
help you every step of the way and make it so easy.
Request your FREE games or trivia pack today at www.
thinko.org.au or call Whitney on 02 8875 4673.
