Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My mum Dora was diagnosed with Vascular Dementia back in 2007 and after a difficult few years passed away in 2010; my dad Maurice also known as 'Spike' was appalled by the treatment she was given in our local hospital and went on a crusade to improve dementia care and awareness locally.

His involvement with dementia and dementia care resulted in a specialist dementia unit being opened at our local hospital which was named the Bernard ADU as well as improving dementia awareness throughout the hospital

Rightly so, he was awarded a local 'Pride' award and was also awarded a BEM in the 2014 Queen's Birthday Honours.

Sadly he passed away in December, I have taken on this challenge not only to raise money in memory of my mum but also in my own small way to continue his great work.
