We provide help and hope to everyone living with dementia.


Next Wednesday the 7th of November, i will be losing my beard and sideburns to my boss Mick who will be armed with a straight razor hot shave kit he bought on ebay! 

As you all know, over the years I've grown quite attached to my beard, stroking it plays an integral role to my thinking face. I'm not sure i'll function normally without it, but for the Alzheimer's society im willing to take that risk. 

Any donations would be greatly appreciated for this great cause. The thought of Mick standing behind me with a straight razor terrifies me, but i'm sure it will be something we wont be forgetting!

We will be having some drinks and snacks for this life changing (for me) event. If anyone wants to come and watch please let me know!
