Kind hearted local lady, Lisa Duncan recently shaved her long hair to raise a staggering sum of money for ‘Dementia Dog’, a cause close to her heart.
‘Dementia Dog’ is a research project that looks at benefits of how dogs can help people with dementia.
Lisa’s gran, who had dementia, sadly passed away 2 years ago. Lisa told us, “I wanted to do something in her memory but also raise money for a worthwhile cause at the same time to help other people who are currently facing this battle.”
“After doing research I came across Dementia Dog and I think the work they are doing fantastic. It saddens me to know that the only have funding available until 31 August 2019, which means although current families with a dementia dog remain unaffected, no further families could benefit from this life-changing opportunity.”
Incredibly, Lisa has raised a whopping £3,320 so far on her just giving page. If you would like to help Lisa with this worthwhile cause, you can donate here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/lisa-duncan12
