An event to help Alzheimer’s sufferers in the area will be held for the third time in four years this weekend.

A fundraising coffee morning to raise awareness and funds for vital cause the Alzhemier’s Society will be held on Saturday at the memorial Hall in Haxey from 10.30am.

The event, first held in 2010, when it raised £1,700, is once again organised by local fundraiser Gill Snow (pictured (centre) at the 2012 event).

The big hearted organiser said: “The charity will be raising funds to help improve the quality of life of people affected by dementia. There will be lots for people to do and see including a tombola stall and a raffle with some great prizes.

“Many of the prizes have been donated by kindhearted people from the community and there have also been many kind donations to this vital cause.”

She added: “In the first year of this event in 2010 we raised £1,700. When the event was run for the second time in August, 2012, we raised a fantastic £2,000. This year we are aiming to raise up to £2,500 with the help of the community.”
