Welwyn Garden City-based charity Isabel Hospice held a play and afternoon tea as part Dementia Awareness Week.

The hospice’s event was held this week and involved a play named ‘Don’t Leave Me Now’ being performed at the Living Well Hub in Hall Grove.

Over 50 guests then enjoyed an afternoon tea and lively post-show discussion.

An Isabel Hospice spokeswoman said: “Don’t Leave Me Now by Brian Daniels explored the impact of early onset dementia and family life.

“It tackled the theme of ‘Where does love end and duty begin?’ and asks the question ‘Does it?’.

“Brian Daniels is an established and award winning playwright and theatre practitioner.

“It is endorsed by major dementia charities Dementia UK, The Alzheimer’s Society, Dementia Pathfinders, Cruse Bereavement Care and Hospice UK.”
