Thanks, Monica

SIR, — On behalf of Community Dementia Care NI, I would like to thank sincerely Monica Meese for organising her soup lunch in memory of her mother, Eileen McPoland, who had Lewy Bodies Dementia.

Monica wishes to thank everyone who helped, especially Sunnyside Bakery, Mildred Kelly, Katie’s Kitchen, Top Catering, Donard View Service Station and Community Dementia Care NI volunteers.

Special thanks to the soup makers, dishwashers and those who attended and donated ballot prizes. Also thank you to the many local people who supported this local community group that provides much needed support for people with dementia, their carers and families.

Monica raised the fantastic amount of £705 which she presented to Community Dementia Care NI to assist them with their continuing support to the many families that use their services.

Yours etc,

Clare Keenan,

Community Dementia Care NI.
