Dementia Centre Opens In Town

Friday December 20 2013


We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley


A DEMENTIA support centre entirely funded by voluntary donations has been opened in Barnsley.

More than £36,000 was raised over an eight-month period by Barnsley Independent Alzheimer's and Dementia Support (BIADS) to fund the centre.

The charity, founded in 2009, offers support and activities for people with dementia and their carers.

The centre, at Joseph Exley House on Dean Street, was opened by Barnsley Council leader Sir Steve Houghton.

The charity launched its Buy a Brick for BIADS appeal in March enabling it to acquire the lease and refurbish the building.

Linda Pattison, chief officer at BIADS, said: "Our dream of opening our own dementia support centre has come true.

"Everyone connected with BIADS is extremely proud of the progress we have made in such a short time."

LOL - you are so dim. You started the thread. I think anybody reading this can tell my genuine posts. Your posting style gives it away. No space after a full stop, capital letters throughout. The words 'jog on bitch' give it away. Misogynistic ****. Now go and **** off to the other side of **** and when you get there **** OFF SOME MORE.
