Angelika Eberhard McKenzie, practice team leader for Alzheimer Scotland, North Aberdeenshire Services recently received a cheque for £350 from ASDA in Peterhead.

Angelika thanked ASDA, for their generous donation and passed on sincere thanks and appreciation to the ASDA team in Peterhead for having nominated Alzheimer Scotland as one of the charities to benefit from the funds they have raised.

Angelika said: “The donation will help make a real difference to people with dementia and their carers who live in the local area.

“Alzheimers Scotland provides a wide range of services for people with dementia and their carers across Scotland.

“Our services provide personalised support designed around each individual.

“In Peterhead we provide a day care facility called the ‘Forget-Me Not Club’ and we also offer home support, as well as support to family members via a Carers’ Support Group.

“Through our network of Dementia Advisors, Link Workers and a 24-hour free dementia helpline and our services we provide advice and information.

“We also have a network of branches which work locally to raise awareness to improve the position of people with dementia and their carers.”

She added: We use fundraised income to provide a holistic approach to providing services and to supplement or enhance the services we provide. As well as being able to enhance services that help support people with dementia and their families, the money donated will help meet their needs and also improve the quality of their lives.”
