Last month we held a week-long bake sale at the practice to raise funds for Jesmond Dementia Action Alliance (JDAA)
JDAA was started in 2014 by a group of local people who wanted to make Jesmond a dementia-friendly community.
After a final count, together we raised £176.50!
Annette and Felicity from JDAA visited us at No 17 Osborne Road last week to receive a cheque from Nursing Team Lead Susan Mensforth, Dr Sarah Nicholson and Dr Fiona Smith.
“Thank you so very, very much for raising this money for Jesmond Dementia Action Alliance.
“We run keep fit activities in three sheltered housing schemes in Jesmond: Haldane House, Pilgrim’s Court and Sandyford Park. In order to make these sessions Covid-safe, we want to purchase a resistance band for each participant and clinical wipes.
“The money raised by Jesmond Health Partnership has come at just the right time and will be so useful in helping us restart this work.”
– Annette, Jesmond Dementia Action Alliance
