  • Eamonn Donnelly, a teacher from Northern Island, has almost completed his 'Long Walk Home' - an epic 2,500km sponsored hike aimed at raising awareness and funds for dementia research. Eamonn was compelled to complete this mission after losing his mother to the condition in 2014.
  • August 14th - 20th marked National Allotments Week: a series of events geared towards recognising the importance of allotments as healthy, communal spaces. Gardening is a great activity for older people and the week's events were well-attended by senior members of the community.
  • World Photo Day was held on August 19th, and celebrated the power images have to record cherished memories and share special moments with friends and relatives across the globe. Photos can be a vital memory aid for older people, as well as an enjoyable means of reminiscing.
