Theresa Villiers gets a hole in one

Theresa Villiers MP for Chipping Barnet and Secretary of State for Northern Ireland visited Saracens Dementia Club today. She was inspired by her visit and said:

“the cafĂ© is clearly having a hugely positive impact on the dementia sufferers who come along and their families. There was such a genuinely happy atmosphere and it was heart warming to know that this is possible even when people are grappling with this terrible disease.”

I was invited to the above charity fundraiser game. The rain eventually stopped to allow the game to start at about 15:00. The Bunbury Cricket XI are made of show biz personalities and actors who had given up their time for this good cause.

Everyone enjoyed building the tower and Anthony Cohen managed to lift the complete tower.
