Lisa Rutter, Former Mayor of Barnet and Ageing Well Champion organised and brought together 3 organisations – Saracens, Barnet Council and Alzheimer’s Society to provide the public with information and support about Dementia. The day long event was on Tuesday 6th October at Brent Cross Shopping Centre
at the centre point from 9am to 8pm. The main aim of the day was to raise awareness of this terrible illness and to stamp out stigma. During the day people were able to see doctors and other professionals to provide information and advice. Rugby fans were able to see the Saracens Premiership Trophy from 12 mid day to 3pm.
The day proved to be very successful as a lot of people approached us for advice and information on Dementia. We had a lot of support from staff from the 3 main organisations as well as Age Uk and Lisa wants to thank everybody who attended and helped to support the day.
