Host a Cuppa for a Cause!

Do you like baking and having a catch-up with your family, workmates or friends? Preheat the oven, boil the kettle and help raise money for Alzheimer’s Gisborne Tairāwhiti. Enable us to continue to provide services to those living with dementia and support for their families. A simple cup of tea could help us make all the difference. Encourage a koha at your Cuppa for a Cause. Host it in September to celebrate World Alzheimer's month or host it anytime that suits you. Would you like some more information? Ph: 06 867 0752
