Dementia Club UK celebrates The Rotary Club of Elstree and Borehamwood joining in Association with Dementia Club UK on Monday 17th June 2019 at The Venue Leisure Centre, Elstree Way, Borehamwood WD6 1JY.
The Mayor of Hertsmere Rabbi Cllr Alan Plancey was invited to launch the event with The Rotary Club President Cllr Cynthia Barker who is also the Deputy Mayor.
Cllr. Lisa Rutter the Founder and Chairman of Dementia Club UK and Former Mayor of The London Borough of Barnet welcomed the Mayor and other guests and said a few words about the charity and also read out a poem which she had written. The Mayor followed to say a few words and congratulated Lisa for her work and stressed the importance of raising awareness to let people know of the help they can receive from this new dementia club.
The Mayor then proceeded to cut the cake together with Lisa and Cynthia and this was followed by the excellent music entertainment by Moshe Tamir who got people up and dancing very quickly. Everyone enjoyed the afternoon. A kosher buffet was also provided.
Lisa said – “I am delighted and honoured that The Mayor attended the launch. Everyone was so pleased to meet him. It was a very successful event. Dementia Club UK not only looks after those who suffer with dementia but also their carers and families and those who have lost someone with dementia and are now lonely. We provide information and advice, we have 2 GPs who attend most sessions, chair exercises, music entertainment and social activities. Sessions at Borehamwood are held on the 3rd Monday of every month. Our next session is on Monday 15th July at 1pm to 3pm and all are welcome."
