Members of the Suffolk business community will join together with the Mayor of Ipswich for afternoon tea on Wednesday, 7th November at The Belstead Brook Hotel in Ipswich in aid of The Alzheimer’s Society.
The event, the first in the ‘Tea Time Networking’ series organised by The Write Impression, will aim to raise support, funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s Society, a charity which people living with dementia and their families in Suffolk and helps to raise vital funds for a condition that affects 800,000 people in the UK and one in three people aged over 65 will die with dementia.
‘Tea Time Networking’ in association with Alzheimer’s Society will include presentations from the Mayor of Ipswich, Counsellor Mary Blake, as well as Sue Vincent, a campaigner for the charity who was personally affected by Alzheimer’s when her Mother was diagnosed with the disease. Sue will present ‘About Dementia’, an overview of the support the Alzheimer’s Society is offering nationally and locally. Sue is passionate about the positive effect the charity can have on the lives of people living with dementia and their families, “I became involved in campaigning to help make a difference so that others are better informed and supported to help them get the best care and support available.”
