September 2018 will see the first anniversary of our Honiton Admiral Nurse Campaign and Honiton Dementia Action Alliance’s drive to bring specialist support to local families living with dementia.

Thanks to the most generous cover afforded us by the Herald we have been able to share with you all the work and support the campaign has been lucky enough to receive from our community.

With one in three of us knowing someone touched by dementia it is not really such a surprise why so many hearts have been touched and with this personal connection comes a real understanding as to the benefit an Admiral Nurse for Honiton will bring.

With the recruitment process to find our nurse now well underway, Honiton Dementia Action Alliance is in a mood to rejoice in our collective achievements over the past 12 months.

Thanks goes to Feniton Church which raised an amazing £243 from a coffee morning and cake sale. Feniton are a Dementia Friendly Church and Honiton Memory Cafe are looking forward to attending a special Harvest Service with them in September.

Those of you who regularly walk past Roderick Butler Antiques will know what goodies are put out on their plant and veg stand. This week I was delighted to be invited along by Valentine, Roderick and Humphrey Butler to receive a further donation.

That makes the total this year about £400 from the plant sales and £200 from Humphrey’s adventure maps, so thank you Butler Family and customers for your loyal and ongoing support.
