2018 Amanda Smith Cycle - in memory of past Zurich Colleagues

Thanks for visiting our fundraising page. The 2018 Amanda Smith Cycle - in memory of past Zurich Colleagues, is in its 9th year and has to date raised a wonderful €100,000 for various charities.

The charities that we have chosen to support are very worthy causes and we would very much appreciate your support in helping us to raise funds for these organisations.

Our team of cyclists & helpers will set out on Saturday 21st July 2018 from our office in Ballsbridge and make our way along the 140km route to our Wexford office. Please show us your support by giving whatever you can to our charity partners - The Alzheimer Society of Ireland, Alone & Windmill Therapeutic Training Unit (Wexford). The more people that know about the below charities, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family.

Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot to us - Team Zurich 2018

The Alzheimer Society of Ireland works across the country in the heart of local communities providing dementia specific services and supports and advocating for the rights and needs of all people living with dementia and their careers. 
  
Their vision is an Ireland where no one goes through dementia alone and where policies and services respond appropriately to the person with dementia and their careers, at the times they need support. 
  
A national non-profit organisation, The Alzheimer Society of Ireland is person centred, rights-based and grassroots led with the voice of the person with dementia and their carer at its core. 

ALONE provides Housing with Support, Support Coordination, Befriending and Campaigns for Change to hundreds of older people every week, who are homeless, socially isolated, living in deprivation or in crisis.

·Support Coordination works with older people who are in crisis situations & need extra support to age at home. 
·Befriending provides companionship to older people who are socially isolated through a weekly volunteer visit. 
·Housing with Support provides homes to older people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, & need a level of support. 
· Campaigns for Change are designed to raise awareness about the challenges & issues that vulnerable older people face as they age 
  
Windmill Therapeutic Training Unit was set up in January 1988 to serve the local community in Wexford with a real emphasis on a new approach to the stereo-typed establishments in dealing with people with intellectual disabilities. The trainees range from the profound to the upper range of intellectual disabilities. The requirements of each trainee is so varied from one to one to group activities. Zurich has been involved with Windmill for several years and the impact on the trainees has been terrific. The visits to our Centre in Wexford and visits from our staff to their premises have built a bond that the trainees talk about and look forward to each time.
