An Admiral Job

March 01, 2020

In England, around 460,000 people are diagnosed with dementia, many who have not had a formal diagnosis.

Dementia UK currently have 382 Admiral Nurses - nurses who support those carers who care for those with dementia.

From face-to-face access and a telephone helpline that has helped over 19,000 carers over the last year alone.

Jan Burt has raised £90,000 over the last 10 years from hosting charity balls, like tonight's event, to smaller events throughout the year - and this year is her 10th Anniversary Gala Ball.  Her resolve has already helped provided an Admiral Nurse for the charity, and she hopes to get to the £100,000 mark by the end of the year!

Tonight's Gala Dinner was an amazing event - with 80 guests dressed to impress, enjoying a delicious 3 course meal at the Brocket Hall Golf Club, as well as entertainment with a "Heads or Tails" game, an auction with an array of sumptuous prizes, and prize raffle, followed by music and dancing with music from the ReBelles.

An upcoming young magician, Henry Wells, wowed guests with his card magic - a name to watch!

With mounted prints being sold on the night, I'm sure Jan raised a fair amount from the event.


 


And I was lucky enough to be invited to join the guests for the food - which was ABSOLUTELY DEEEEELICIOUS!

 

Thankyou Jan for letting me be part of the evening - I look forward to working with you again!
