**PHIL ROSE RAFFLE RAISED £108**

Lesley's Fabulous Forget-Me-Not Fundraising 40th Year

This year I turn 40.

I would like to use this year to raise money for dementia research and my Dad's nursing home. 

My  Dad  was  diagnosed  with  mixed  vascular  dementia  and  Alzheimer's  in  August  2015. My mam has done an amazing job of caring for him 24/7 for the past 3 years, but it has become increasingly more difficult as the dementia progressed, until recently we had to admit that Dad needs 24hr nursing care.

We are heartbroken and finding it difficult to deal with, but I would like to make something positive out of a truly awful situation.

Dementia isn't just being a little bit forgetful or a natural part of getting older.  It  infuriates  me  when  people  make  jokes  about  it.   There  is  nothing  funny  about  dementia  -  it  is  a  horrible  disease  that  is  stealing  our  lovely  Dad  from  us.

So in my 40th year I would like to raise money to help others with dementia and maybe hold a party or something for the residents and staff in Dad's new home.

I hope to raise money by:

*   taking  part  in  sponsored  events  -  such  as  a Memory  Walk

*    selling  items  on  eBay

*    contact  businesses  and  people  for  raffle  prizes

*    take  donations  for  doing  family  tree  research

Even  if  people  can't  donate  I  hope  to  raise  more  awareness  about  dementia  so  that  the  next  time  you  are  in  the  street  and  see  someone  looking  confused,  or  are  at  a  till  in  the  shop  and  the  person  in  front  is  slow,  or  someone  says  something  strange  to  you  that  doesn't  quite  make  sense  -  please  think  twice  about  being  mean  or  making  cruel  comments -  show  a  bit  of  understanding  -  ask  if  you  can  help.

Thank  you.
