Weekly Charity Raffles
With Over $1,300 in prizes to be won every week, our charity raffles help support a different charity organisation every month. Throughout May and June we are supporting Dementia Australia.
Did you know that in Australia, Dementia is the second leading cause of death and it is estimated that 250 people are diagnosed with dementia each day.
Dementia is a large group of illnesses that contribute to an overall and progressive decline in a persons ability to function. The main symptoms include; memory loss and a decline in intellect, rationality, social skills and physical function however there are a few different types of Dementia including Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, frontotemporal dementia and Lewy Body Disease. Although this disease can happen to anybody, it is most common after the age of 65.
Dementia Australia is the national body for those living with any form of dementia as well as their families and carers. Currently, they represent 447,115 Australians living with this illness and approximately 1.5million people involved in their care. They provide advocacy, support services, education services and information via special programs and services throughout Australia.
Throughout May and June, the Club will be supporting Dementia Australia through our weekly Wednesday and Saturday Raffles and Tito Donations.
