Alzheimers NZ & Hanover Agree To Sponsorship

Alzheimers NZ And Hanover Group Agree To Sponsorship

Auckland (July 28) - Alzheimers New Zealand has secured a sponsorship agreement , with Hanover Group Ltd.

Hanover’s support for Alzheimer’s New Zealand, which includes a cash component, will go beyond pure financial assistance, with the company to work with the charitable organisation to develop business and sponsorship models, which will ultimately see funding and therefore the services of the organisation grow.

Kerry Finnigan, CEO of Hanover, said Alzheimers New Zealand represents an ideal organisation for Hanover to work with.

“With around 8% of people over 65 years of age affected by dementia, we feel this was an organisation that can really benefit from our support,” Mr Finnigan said.

”The majority of Hanover’s clients fit into the age group for which Alzheimers is potentially a real concern, and we are thrilled to be able to assist in developing a greater understanding of this condition,” Mr Finnigan said

Alzheimers New Zealand National President Wendy Fleming said the support from Hanover will allow the organisation to increase its services.

“We are especially pleased that by working with us to develop long- term strategies and programmes, Hanover is forming an ongoing relationship .”

Alzheimers New Zealand supports the work of their 22 autonomous member organisations throughout NZ, to provide advocacy, raise public awareness, and to provide information and fundraising operations nationally.

Mr Finnigan said Hanover will do all it can to help Alzheimers New Zealand look outside its normal spectrum of donors and sponsors.

“At Hanover Group we have a wide variety of customers and relationship partners – some of whom have been with us for many years. We recognise the importance of strong and enduring relationships – and we will be bringing this philosophy to our partnership with Alzheimers New Zealand,” Mr Finnigan said.
