A Welwyn woman is hosting a luxury dinner and dance event in aid of charity.
Jan Burt, 65, lost her husband Victor to dementia in 2015 and since 2010 has raised over £65,000 for Dementia UK.
Victor was diagnosed in 2004 and Jan cared for him until his last day. She received “very little help” until a friend told her about Admiral Nurses, who specialise in dementia care.
Jan campaigned to get Admiral Nurses into Hertfordshire and then began raising money for Dementia UK.
Jan said: “There’s a thief out there. It’s robbing memories. It’s robbing the ability to talk. It’s robbing the ability to eat, walk, get dressed, shower, and recognise loved ones. It’s called dementia and we’ve got to do something about it.”
This year’s dinner dance event is on Friday, November 11, at 7pm at Brocket Hall Golf Club.
The event costs £55 per person or a table of 10 costs £500 which includes a luxury three course dinner, live music, raffle and a charity auction.
