Fans visiting Saturday’s game with Ipswich Town at the Weston Homes Stadium can help kick-off the club’s charity partnership.
Staff and volunteers from Alzheimer’s Society, the chosen Charity of the Year this season, will be greeting supporters as they arrive for the match against Ipswich Town on Saturday afternoon. It’s the first official appearance from the charity since the partnership was launched last month.
Gary Sutcliffe, Alzheimer’s Society Community Fundraiser for Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire, said: “Saturday’s game will be the official launch for us. We hope fans are united against dementia and give us a great welcome.
“We’ll not only be fundraising on the day with our collection buckets but to mark the launch, our Dementia Community Roadshow will be parked at the ground with staff on hand to answer any dementia questions.
“There are more than 1,900 people living with dementia in Peterborough, yet too many are facing it alone without adequate support. Come and have a chat with us to find out what support is available and also how you can get involved to help make a difference.”
In the fan zone on Saturday, the Alzheimer’s Society will be represented with bucket collectors and information about how you can help and support the charity.
If you are unable to visit the roadshow and have recently been affected by dementia, call Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Resource Centre, Lincoln Road, Peterborough on 01733 893853 or email Peterborough@alzheimers.org.uk.
