Alzheimers New Zealand

Alzheimers New Zealand represents people affected by dementia, as well as their carers and family.

In 2018, the Countdown Lamington appeal runs from Monday 25 June until Sunday 22 July. During this time, 20 cents from every packet of Southern Kitchen Lamingtons purchased from Countdown will be donated to Alzheimers New Zealand.

The not-for-profit organisation offers practical support to people living with the condition, as well as their carers and family.

Countdown has supported Alzheimers New Zealand for more than 13 years and has helped raise $1.5 million during this period. In 2016 more than $20,000 was raised, which was used to support the 60,000 New Zealanders living with dementia.
