Services provided by the Co Donegal branch of ASI are a vital lifeline for people living with dementia.

All monies raised locally stay local and support Alzheimer services in Donegal which include day care, home care, support groups, social clubs and a dementia adviser.

Now in its 21st year, the fundraiser has seen thousands of people host tea parties in their homes, offices and schools raising vital funds for the ASI which provides essential support to the 48,000 people and 50,000 family carers living with dementia in this country.

"We are calling on members of the next Government to put carers firmly on their list of priorities."
