Our charity partnership with Alzheimer’s Society from June 2022 to 2025
What are we doing?
The Karmann Ghia Owners Club (GB) is proud to announce that it will be partnering with the Alzheimer’s Society for the next 3 years (2023 to 2025) to assist it in its fund-raising activities.
As a long-established classic car club we seek to be inclusive of all models of Karmann Ghia but, more importantly, all owners, however diverse their background or state of health.
From 2019 to 2022 the club raised £4,109 in aid of the ME Association
The club will be looking to generate donations by its presence at various classic car shows during the year and through encouraging donations through its on-line JustGiving page details of this are on the ‘How to give’ section below.
This is an exciting new area of activity for the Karmann Ghia Owners Club (GB) which we hope will offer our members the chance to come together and raise funds for an important charity whilst meeting fellow enthusiasts from across the UK.
Why we have chosen The Alzheimer’s Society?
Club members proposed and voted to support the Alzheimers Society from June 2022 to 2025. For every pound that club members raise through their fundraising events, the club will match the amount up to a maximum of £500 per annum. Alzheimer’s Society is transforming the landscape of dementia forever. Until the day we find a cure, we will create a society where those affected by dementia are supported and accepted, able to live in their community without fear or prejudice.
The word ‘dementia’ describes a set of symptoms that over time can affect memory, problem-solving, language and behaviour. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia.
