Mayor's Charity

As my adopted good cause for my Mayoral year, I originally chose the Living Well Dementia Support Group; this is a new group that holds free drop in sessions on alternate Tuesdays at 2.15pm at St George's Church Hall. These fortnightly sessions allow both those living with dementia and their carers to socialise in a relaxed environment, and take part in a range of activities including singing, exercises, arts, crafts and quizzes. More details, and meeting dates, can be found on the St George's Church website www.poyntonpc.net.

We are very fortunate in Poynton to have two groups offering Dementia Support as we also have Poynton Golden Memories. This group also provides Dementia Friendly activities, peer support, laughter & enjoyment on alternate Wednesdays at The Centre in Poynton. For more details please visit their Facebook Page 'Poynton Golden Memories'.

On 14th November I was delighted to report that I had beaten my original fundraising target of £1500, and had been challenged to double my target to £3000 - which I did! You can track my progress, and donate here: http://bit.ly/2D5WJZi

Therefore, the first £1500 I have raised will be donated to Living Well, everything I raise after that will be split between Living Well and Poynton Golden Memories to help both groups continue to deliver their invaluable services!
