At the event, a range of experts, community groups and volunteers were on hand to offer help and guidance to people who are impacted by dementia.

Tracie Nemeth, proposal manager at Aviva, said: "People misunderstand dementia and think it is just about memory loss, when it also affects the ability to plan and mood.

"That is why it is so important to raise awareness around dementia and I was overwhelmed by the response of people at the event.

Last year, Aviva raised £7,000 and have set themselves a record-breaking target of £15,000 this year. So far, they have raised nearly £12,000.
