Alzheimer's Research UK

This is a new group, that has been set up  in Whickham and the local area, which is to promote awareness of Dementia and Alzheimer's disease, the work that is being done by Alzheimer's Research UK and to raise funds. ARUK has some very useful booklets to help people who have family members affected. This summer our small group has attended local Fayres and had a bucket collection.It has been fun and I have met some really interesting people. We really need more people to join the group because we need more ideas and  help to  raise funds, to combat this horrendous disease.We don't have regular meetings yet but I would love to hear from anyone who might be able to share ideas for raising money or who could give a hand when we have activities and/or collections.
