Local MP joins Alzheimer's Society for Festive Fundraising and Carols at Maidstone's Mall Shopping Centre

Helen Grant joined the Alzheimer's Society at Maidstone's Mall Shopping Centre on Friday singing festive favourites fundraising for people with Dementia.

Alzheimer's Society staff and volunteers provide local information and over 2,000 services across the UK to people affected by dementia in their communities.

Their local services include day care and home care for people with dementia, as well as support and befriending services to help partners and families cope with the demands of caring.

Helen said:

"I was delighted to join staff and volunteers from the Alzheimer's Society raising money for such an important cause.

"Dementia is a heart-breaking disease that affects many families across Maidstone and the Weald and the country, and it was touching to see how many people stopped by for a chat and to donate.

"The Alzheimer's Society do fantastic work supporting families in our communities and it's so important, particularly at this time of year, that we remember those families that are suffering and need our support.
