Congratulations & Thank you

We at the Romsey Dementia Action Group (RomDAG) would like to say a huge congratulations and thank you to Kay & Terry. Kay & Terry were married on 18th March and generously chose to donate money from their wedding guests to RomDAG.

RomDAG is a volunteer led group aimed at promoting awareness and understanding of dementia across the community of Romsey. We hold regular activity groups for people living with dementia, dementia awareness sessions to promote understanding of dementia and host an annual dementia festival, Demfest, for our community to come together for music, activities and information in the name of those living with dementia. Demfest this year will be at Sir Harold Hillier Gardens on the 10th September 2017.

Kay & Terry donated the money to RomDAG to help support us to continue to provide the activity groups and Demfest. They chose our charity as a local group for dementia in honour of Terry’s first wife, Cynthia, who passed away from dementia in June 2010. Cynthia was a Romsey girl who was married to Terry for 44 years. Terry cared for Cynthia at home for 4 years before she moved to Thatchbury Manor care home for a further 4 years. Kay has been a family friend to Cynthia & Terry for 40 years & 4 years ago, Kay & Terry became partners and married in March this year.

We are so grateful to Kay & Terry for their wonderful donation and hope to do them proud with our ongoing activities. We would also like to wish them much love and happiness in their life together.
