Our Bring & Buy Sale in January in aid of Funding Neuro was a super success and we
thank you for your great support – we raised £265 which included Harry Bates’s poetry
book sales of £45 (from the Christmas party). The remaining pieces are being taken
to AgeNI for them to sell in their shop in Carrick, so both of our charities will
benefit from your help and generosity. _______________________________________________
The speaker at the January meeting was Aileen Hamill from Alzheimer’s Society who
gave us a very interesting insight into a few of the 104 types of dementia. The
Society is always looking for volunteers to help with people who are coping with
this condition. Please contact her on 07716 628805 if you would like to know more
