New Zealand Golf Large Cup Championships


Golf enthusiasts come and play in the inaugural New Zealand Golf Large Cup Championships on November 12 - 14th 2014 at the Templeton Golf Club for a chance to win a National Title! The event is over three days with three different start times available.

We are very grateful that Alzheimers Canterbury is one of three beneficiaries of this exciting championship, so please enter and support all people affected by dementia in the Canterbury region.

Alzheimers Awareness Week - Appeal Days Friday 19th and Saturday 20th September 2014

Many thanks to everyone for their wonderful support during our Appeal Days and special thanks to all our volunteer collectors, staff, Executive and families for helping to collect over these two days.  The buckets of money are still being counted but so far the total will more than match last year's one.  A great effort by everyone.

I sing for 'Alzheimers'

Alzheimers Canterbury is delighted to support  this beautiful CD. Kate Sproule is a Canterbury school girl who at 13 years of age wrote three very personal songs as a tribute to honour her Grandmother who has dementia.

They are available to purchase either:

  • By visiting our offices at 314 Worcester Street, Christchurch (8.30am – 4.30pm weekdays) - $10.00 each
