Awareness of dementia to be raised by Dinas Powys event

Dinas Powys Methodist Church

Dinas Powys Methodist Church will be the venue for a special event on Thursday 21st October 2010, 6.30pm until 8.30pm, to raise awareness of dementia, and also to raise funds for  Crossroads Care in the Vale’s carers and their dependent relatives.

The idea of holding this dementia awareness and fundraising event was conceived by a Dinas Powys resident who received a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease last year. Although very independent, the gentleman receives some support from Crossroads Care, and wants to raise awareness of the impact of the disease.

There will be musical entertainment provided by local brass band the Dinas Powis Ecumenical Seven, stalls and information stands, refreshments and a raffle, all for the price of just £3 per person (£2.50 for concessions).

If you would like to support Crossroads Care in the Vale by attending this event, please contact Jo Hendry on (029) 2070 0057 (option 3).
