Charities and support groups gathered together to raise awareness of dementia.

The South Lincolnshire Dementia Action Alliance held an event at Bourne Corn Exchange on Wednesday.

Businesses and members of the public were invited to come and meet members of the alliance and find out how they can support people with dementia.

The alliance is made up of a range of organisations involved in dementia care and representatives from 16 of those were at Wednesday’s event.

Alliance chairman Heather Gilling said it was good to meet members of the Bourne community.

She added: “We would always have been pleased to have more people but we were pleased to see a number come along who were really interested in the work of the alliance and the various organisations that make it up.

“We were delighted from that point of view. It was a chance to talk to the public but also an opportunity for the organisations to network and get to know each other.

“It was a productive day.”
