WITH over 2,000 locals currently diagnosed with dementia and that number set to double by 2050, a $4,000 donation made to Dementia Australia by the Kensington Gardens Craft Group will go a long way to assisting people with the disease.

Dementia Australia dementia consultant, Julie Jackson said, “Donations such as these are always important as it helps to go toward research for dementia.

“These ladies have done an amazing job and the donation will be put to good use. It will help towards finding a cure and better understanding dementia.

“We’d like to thank the group for the lovely surprise and for their hard work and efforts.”
