Spotlight – Pickles, preserves and jams making a difference to people with Dementia

Pickles, preserves and jams hand-made by Frances Bayley, a resident at Kiri Te Kanawa retirement village has helped raise $11,700 to be donated to Alzheimers Gisborne. All ingredients were donated and many hands contributed to their success. Sales of the preserves, combined with raffles and other fundraisers were matched dollar-for-dollar by Ryman’s head office and donated to the Gisborne Alzheimers Society.

Alzheimers New Zealand was Ryman’s chosen charity for 2017, all up Ryman was able to donate $390,000 for Alzheimers NZ

Alzheimers Gisborne presented residents and staff at Ryman Healthcare’s Kiri Te Kanawa retirement village with a “Certificate of Awesomeness” this week. The certificate was a show of gratitude after $11,700 was donated to Alzheimers Gisborne.

Jams and pickles are available for sale at the shop in Kiri Te Kanawa Village on Gwyneth Place.
