Dementia Research Foundation

The Rotary Club of Noosa Heads supports Libby Day in raising funds for the Dementia Research Foundation.

Libby is a valued and long time supporter of Alzheimer’s Australia Dementia Research Foundation.

Over the past six years Libby has organised an annual event in Noosa Heads, Queensland, working tirelessly to bring people together to celebrate and enjoy performances and fine food as well as to raise awareness and funds for dementia research.

Libby hosts her events in the name of “Molly’s Song” as a tribute to her mother who had dementia. Molly loves music and Libby has seen first-hand the wonderful impact that music has on people with dementia.  

In September last year Libby took to the road in an eight day, 859km cycle from Melbourne to Canberra. Libby was joined by local riders, Rotary club member Charles Priest and son Peter. Along the way many others joined them to help promote the campaign. All donations Libby received went to further research into dementia.

In October the Rotary Club of Noosa Heads arranged an evening with the NEW WORLD RYTHM CHOIR at the "J" Noosa Junction. As a result, $1,500 was donated to the Dementia Research Foundation.


A MESSAGE FROM LIBBY

Hello one and all.
Wishing you a very safe and happy festive season.
I also wanted you to know that the Grand Total of money raised by all the Molly's Song activities in 2014 is an amazing $24,100.57.
This is the combination of funds raised by my wonderful Niece Melissa who ran the Sydney Morning Herald Half Marathon in May, the Ride to Remember in September, the New World Rhythm Choir concert in October and the money that continues to be donated into the tin at Charles and Ingrids Jewellery Store.

Thank-you to everyone that has helped make this year so successful.
Big hugs from me. xxxxx


 

This year Libby has arranged a fundraising evening at Noosa Arts Theatre featuring Quartet, a comedy written by Sir Ronald Harwood.
