Donation from The Public Service Credit Union
The PSCU very kindly chose us as their Charity of Choice 2020 and donated €19,000 to our 19 volunteer- led branches on Friday, 25th September. The presentation was done virtually through Zoom and members of PSCU and The ASI were invited to join.
Speaking in advance of the presentation, Credit Union Chairperson Don Bailey said: “It’s wonderful for the credit union to be able to support The Alzheimer Society of Ireland. There is not a family in the country that has not been affected by Alzheimer’s in some way, so this charity is close to the hearts of all the members of PSCU.”
This generosity means so much to our dementia services and supports all across Ireland – we cannot thank the PSCU enough for their kindness.
