Alzheimer’s Society celebrates 10 years of service in north Norfolk

The Alzheimer's Society recently celebrated ten years of service for people with dementia in north Norfolk.

Clients, local professionals and volunteers came together to mark the occasion with music, dancing and a birthday cake.

Stories were also shared of how the local office first began and old newsletters were on display marking the changes, from an office run solely by a few volunteers to the appointment of a team of staff.

Tom and Joan Malivoire from Mundesley were one of the first clients at the north Norfolk office and said: 'It's really made a difference to how we have both coped and we've made some smashing friends along the way.

'It's lovely to be part of this anniversary event and to celebrate the achievements that have been made.'

Dementia support manager Jackie Thacker thanked all the volunteers for their continued support.

The charity held the event on June 18 at St Joseph's Roman Catholic Church Hall in Sheringham.
