Wrekin Housing Trust donation will support our dementia serviceWrekin Housing Trust donated over £5,000 to support Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin’s services for people with dementia and their carers.

Our Director of Operations, Kevin Moore, accepted the cheque from Paula Reynolds, Tenant Services Manager for Wrekin Housing Trust and Sue Hughes, Coordinator of our first Diamond Drop In at Frizes Leasowe in Ketley Bank, at last November’s Retirement Living Awards ceremony at Park House in Shifnal.

The money was raised by the Trust’s Retirement Living schemes and was match funded by the Wrekin Housing Trust. It will be used to fund our network of nine Diamond Drop In Centres which provide help and support for people living with dementia and those who care for them.

We have Diamond Drop Ins in Shrewsbury, Oswestry, Pontesbury, Ketley Bank, Wellington, Dawley, Donnington, and we’re opening a new one on 7 February at Shifnal. All our Drop Ins currently have places available.
