Sight Loss and Dementia Village Appeal

Dementia describes a group of symptoms caused by the gradual death of brain cells, leading to the progressive decline of functions such as memory, orientation, understanding, judgement, calculation, learning, language and thinking. Dementia is a terminal disease where patients are expected to live between 3 to 5 years after diagnosis.

Dementia directly affects 820,000 people in the UK.  Yet it touches the lives of so many people.  The economists may say dementia costs £23 billion; the true social impact is incalculable.  Dementia costs the UK twice as much as cancer, three times as much as heart disease and four times as much as stroke.

We are aiming to build a Sight Loss and Dementia Village. The aim of the project is to raise £394,421 which would enable us to provide first class facilities such as 23 bedrooms, activity centre, shops, a cinema and an outside courtyard for visually impaired people.


As of 28 August 2018 our appeal total is:

£243,358
