Dementia Friendly Kent Awards 2017

What a day we had Friday at the awards ceremony & afternoon tea!!!

¬†What a bumper bunch of nominations and finalists we had this year ūüôā

Reducing down to finalists was hard enough, but getting to our winners was a difficult  task for our judges, (all of which are affected by dementia)  because the calibre this year was so high.

The winners were announced at the awards ceremony on the 20th October, and be placed on the website today

more pictures will be arriving as we upload

I say ‘Winners’ but in my mind they are all winners and all deserving of recognition, please take the time to look at the finalist information below.
