Alzheimer’s Society Cymru chosen as
Charity of the Year for 2017

much needed service. Staff and our clients are
hugely grateful for this generous donation and
we all look forward to supporting the partnership
over the next year. ”
Nolan Nicholas, Nolan Charity Fund’s trustee,
said:
“I am delighted that we will be helping to support
Alzheimer’s Society Cymru in 2017. The work that
they do is vitally important in the local
community and for those living with dementia.

The Nolan Charity Fund has extended a helping
hand to Alzheimer’s Society Cymru and chosen
the UK’s leading dementia charity as its ‘Charity
of the Year’ for 2017.
The year-long charity partnership has begun with
a donation of £2,500, which Alzheimer’s Society
Cymru will use to fund the relocation of Tŷ
Perthyn Day Support Service in Ammanford.
The service is to be relocated due to increased
rental costs and its new home requires some
structural work to ensure the safety of clients
using the facility and to make the environment
more dementia-friendly for when it reopens on
Tuesday 18 April.

“When we heard that the Tŷ Perthyn service was
at risk - it was immediately obvious where our
initial donation to the charity should go. This was
a service in need of money now or it risked being
closed and lost to those who need it. I am
delighted that we have been able to help with
the relocation of the service and that it can
continue to support people affected by dementia
in our local community of Ammanford. The Nolan
Charity Fund looks forward to working with and
raising money for Alzheimer’s Society Cymru in
2017.”
Over the next 12 months the two charities will
work together to raise funds for the Live Well
with Dementia programme and the charity’s
flagship Side by Side service.

Pintos’ customers continue to support the Nolan
Charity Fund, and collection tins in the café and
chip shop have now raised £333.11. Thank you!

“We cannot thank the Nolan Charity Fund
enough for choosing to support Alzheimer’s
Society Cymru. There are over 3,000 people living
with dementia in Carmarthenshire and services
such as Tŷ Perthyn support those affected to
maintain independence whilst tackling issues of
loneliness and isolation. Without their support
we might not have been able to continue this
