Martin Cheer, CEO of PUB CHARITY announced today "Life Education Trust NZ and Alzheimer’s NZ contribute to the education, emergency and health and cultural growth of New Zealand communities in their own way, and each has been awarded a significant donation this month. Every month, except December, Pub Charity donations are awarded to organisations in communities throughout New Zealand. Pub Charity has distributed 3,270 donations amounting to 28,488.780 Million so far this financial YTD."
John O’Connell CEO of Life Education Trust NZ "Last month we were named as a finalist in the World Summit Awards for our innovative use of technology to teach health to children. It’s great to have Pub Charity recognise how committed we are to being as effective as we can by backing us the way they do. This year we’ll teach 245,000 children at 1400 schools throughout New Zealand so their support of us has a significant impact."
Alzheimer’s NZ Executive Director Catherine Hall was delighted by the funding decision and said the money will go a long way in helping the organisation to support the many New Zealanders affected by dementia, one of New Zealand’s fastest growing health concerns. "Dementia already affects around 50,000 people in New Zealand and that number is set to triple by 2050 as the population ages, with baby boomers now coming through to the ages when dementia is most frequently diagnosed," Ms Hall said.
