LAST month, a quiz night was held in support of Understanding Dementia — a UK charity changing the way society sees dementia.
Raising more than £1,000 for the charity, organisers Lucy White and Shirley Pearce reflected on the evening’s success on social media.
Ms White wrote: “Massive thanks must go to everyone who came, all the volunteers and everyone who donated raffle prizes and items for auction.
“You all helped make this event the success that it was. And thank you to the Oriental Wok for the fab fish and chip supper.”
Understanding Dementia says that: “Instead of fighting against it like a disease, we can work with it as a disability.
“This approach will improve the person’s well-being and may even help to slow their decline.”
The charity says they help friends and family of dementia patients learn to adapt to their loved ones’ understanding of reality.
Preparations are now underway for the charity barn dance to be held in May 2020.
