A charity race night in aid of “The Birches Alzheimer’s Day Centre, Dundalk” will be held at Dundalk Golf Club on Saturday 16 August.

A charity race night in aid of “The Birches Alzheimer’s Day Centre, Dundalk” will be held at Dundalk Golf Club on Saturday 16 August.

The organisers are hoping to raise €10,000.

100% of all money raised will go to looking after Alzheimer’s patients in “The Birches, Dundalk”.

Business Sponsorships are a very important part of reaching this target. All sponsorships will be acknowledged in the Race Programme and displayed on TV screens throughout the Golf Club.

The following sponsorship options are available: Race Sponsor @ €300: the race will be named after your company; half page add in programme; The company name displayed on TV screen.

Jockey Sponsor @ €50: jockey named after your company name; company name displayed on TV screen with other sponsors.

It would be greatly appreciated if you were in a position to sponsor at some level. A receipt will be issued for all sponsorships, and all cheques should be made payable to “The Birches Alzheimer Day Centre”. I appreciate that business is difficult at present, and understand that not all events can be supported.

If you wish to attend the race night we would be delighted to see you. Tickets costs €25 and include a full hot and cold buffet, racing, DJ, and a great night entertainment.

The Birches was opened in 2000 and it due to the extraordinary generosity of the people of North Louth that the day centre was built. This generosity has continued and so the excellent standard of care has been maintained for clients.

The Birches is partially funded by the Department of Health, supported by the HSENE and The North Louth Branch Dundalk fundraises the balance. There is a Management Committee responsible for the day-to-day management of the Day Centre. All branch members work in a totally voluntary capacity.

The Family support Group was established 1994.

The Support Group is held on the first Tuesday of each month in The Birches Day Centre, Priorland Road, Dundalk at 7pm.

The aim of the group is to provide a support network where people have an understanding of the difficulties of the family carer.
