Jenay McCartan, Community Fundraiser for Alzheimer’s Society in Northern Ireland said: “We are extremely grateful to Harry and Molly for taking on their festive fundraiser once again for Alzheimer’s Society and making more of their amazing Christmas wreaths.

“We have been blown away by all their hard work and their determination to make a difference for people living with dementia”.

“We know that people living with dementia have been one of the most affected groups by COVID-19 and whilst the current situation has been difficult for fundraising, the demand for our services has increased.

“That’s why we are so grateful Harry and Molly for their ongoing support – it really does help us to support people affected by dementia across Northern Ireland now, when they need us most.”
