Alzheimer Scotland Lewis and Harris Branch is raising money through the Co-op Membership scheme.
The money is to sustain existing activities and build on their volunteer base to allow 1-1 support for people living with dementia.
In all, £3,310.84 has been raised so far - see https://membership.coop.co.uk/causes/7816/
Alzheimer Scotland Lewis and Harris Branch say: “We run as many different activities and groups as we possibly can to allow maximisation of social inclusion for those living with dementia and their families.
“We currently run a singing group, walking group, gardening group and various dementia cafes. The dementia cafes are a unique setting for people suffering from dementia and their carers to meet informally and get support from each other.
“Going forward we would love to develop more sport related activities,e.g using the local gym and a snooker club to encourage more male participants to attend our activities.
“We've had lots of interest from young volunteers who we hope could help run these new activities.”
Alzheimer Scotland Lewis and Harris Branch provide support to people living with dementia and their families across the Isle of Lewis and Harris.
“All of the community activities we organise are funded through fundraised income - something we could not survive without.
“These activities benefit many people in many ways, as everyone has a different dementia journey. The peer activities we organise - such as the singing group/walking group, might be the only opportunity that someone living with dementia has to interact with people and connect to their local community, and who may otherwise become isolated.”
