“It was superb for our community project to have Joy’s kind attendance and recognition for all the hard work from volunteers in MMDF.

“A great experience for us to be able to share the challenges and opportunities we have in running our community project to raise awareness of dementia and bringing the local community together to make a difference to those living with the condition in the Marlow area.

“As organisations, businesses, and individuals everywhere, we have needed to greatly adapt, being creative and innovative in how we now operate MMDF.
