Jon was diagnosed with early onset dementia last year. Since then we have been on a rollercoaster of a ride, having had no experience of Alzheimer's disease, we have been adapting to our new normal as best we can and facing new challenges on a daily basis.

Since dementia has affected our family, we have had incredible support from the charity Alzheimer's Support, in particular from the Old Silk Works Day Club in Warminster which Jon currently attends once a week and the carers support group who meet monthly. The staff and volunteers at the Old Silk Works are totally committed to ensuring everyone has an enjoyable time, allowing individuals to just take time out to be themselves, have fun, communicate and make friendships.

We want to show our appreciation to all the dedicated staff and volunteers and hope our fundraising will allow their amazing work to continue. We are looking forward to taking part in this fundraising event and enjoying our walk together around the beautiful grounds of Bowood House.

Please help us raise much needed funds for this charity to ensure they are able to continue to provide support such as this and their other life changing groups throughout Wiltshire. Thank you.

Elaine & Jon Shobbrook
