Sorop­ti­mists put to the test

Central Leader - - News -

Auck­land Sorop­ti­mists are us­ing their brains for a good cause this month.

The women’s group is hold­ing a quiz af­ter­noon to raise funds for Alzheimers Auck­land – its char­ity of choice this year.

Sorop­ti­mists pres­i­dent Penny King says Alzheimers Auck­land is an ap­pro­pri­ate char­ity to sup­port be­cause some mem­bers of the group have had friends and fam­i­lies af­fected by de­men­tia in the past.

Gen­eral man­ager of Alzheimers Auck­land Sue Brew­ster says with only half of the group’s fund­ing com­ing from dis­trict health boards sup­port from Sorop­ti­mists of Auck­land is in­valu­able.

The quiz is be­ing held at St David’s in the Field Church, 202 Hills­bor­ough Rd, Hills­bor­ough, on Satur­day, June 14, from 2pm.

For ticket pre-sales or more in­for­ma­tion about Alzheimers Auck­land con­tact Sue Brew­ster on 622-4230 or visit www. alzheimers.co.nz.
