Alzheimers New Zealand

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

In 2017 (Monday 26 June to Sunday 23 July), 20 cents from each six pack of lamingtons purchased from Countdown were 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.
