I have lived in Maidenhead all my life and have almost 30 years experience within the retail sector.  In a prior role, I came into contact on a daily basis with people with Dementia and also their carers and families and could see how this disease affected people both emotionally and physically. I became a Dementia Friend and volunteered at ‘ADS’ before deciding to use my retail experience and desire to help, to raise awareness and support for those affected by this disease within our local community.
