Tonight the Old School Rooms Scout troop were visited by Tony and his wife Barbara. Both are previous youth workers and 5 years ago Barbara became ill with dementia. Their charity Bristol Dementia Action Alliance who cover the Purple Angels awareness sessions was set up to help sufferers like Barbara.
The scouts listened to a short presentation before role playing 3 scenarios and finally a quiz. Tony then presented the troop a Dimentia awareness certificate and in return he was presented with a cheque tvo £50 towards the charity and its work. We will also raise some money at bag packing in the new year. Big ty to tony and Barbara. Big well done to the scouts for taking the evening seriously.
