Eileen, founder of DonMentia, contacted the Co-op who generously agreed to provide a limousine and chauffeur, Jamie Love, to take Heather and Dennis Garriock on a return trip from their home at Armthorpe to Arksey’s Village Teapot for afternoon tea.

They enjoyed the celebration with friends and carers, including Eileen, who is pictured with the happy couple, who also celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary earlier this year.

Heather has dementia and attends the Dementia Forum at Tickhill Road Hospital, which Eileen runs.

DonMentia fund raises to provide support for Doncaster people with dementia and their carers, including special events like this.

Our Chair, Dr Nick Tupper, will be featuring Eileen’s valuable charitable work in his column in next Monday’s Doncaster Star and at www.drnicktupper.com
