National Volunteer Week May 21 – 27 is a time to show appreciation to the more than 6 million people who volunteer their time to support various causes and charities in Australia.
Dementia Australia is fortunate to have 1,145 volunteers who support us in a number of ways, making the work we do for people living with dementia possible. Quite simply, we couldn’t do it without them! The theme this year, “Give a little. Change a Lot”, is dedicated to one our youngest volunteers, Esther. Esther recently volunteered her time to hold a successful cake stall in her front yard.
Thanks to the support of her community, Esther raised an impressive $730 which she donated to Dementia Australia in loving memory of her Grandmother, Denise, who passed away after living with #dementia, aged 73.
