Justine recently celebrated her 50th birthday and instead of receiving presents she asked her party guests to donate money to her chosen charity Dementia Club UK. We are very grateful to Justine for creating a fund raising page for the charity. Lisa thanked her at today's session at Sha'arei Tsedek and gave Justine some flowers and chocolates.
