IOWBC DONATES TO DEMENTIA UK

IMG_8523A
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of the members of the Isle of Wedmore Bowls Club for choosing to donate your winnings from the 3 league games and cup final to Dementia UK. It sounds like you really are rather skilled and £1338 is incredibly kind of you!Your fundraising will help us to provide specialist dementia support for families through our Admiral Nurse service. They work alongside people with dementia and their families when things get challenging or difficult, providing one-to-one support, guidance and practical solutions people need that can be hard to find elsewhere.

Families that have support from our Admiral Nurses have someone truly expert and caring by their side – helping them to live more positively with dementia in the present, and to face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence and less fear.

You can and should be really proud of your achievement. The money you have raised will take us one step closer to making Admiral Nurses available to everyone that needs them, people like Janet;

“My Admiral Nurse was the one who comforted me, who listened in a compassionate manner, who advised and gave me information that other professionals had failed to supply, who found the time to try and explain and understand my mental turmoil. Knowing that she is there for me is a great reassurance. Words cannot express my debt to the Admiral Nurse”.

Thank you all once again for your support and good luck with your competitions this year!
