The two charities I have chosen for my mayoral year are the Memory Cafe here in Torrington and the North Devon Hospice.

I chose the Memory Cafe because of the increasing number of people suffering from dementia, which is such a cruel disease and has such an impact on family and friends. The Cafe offers stimulating activities for both carers and people with dementia which can help prevent isolation, boredom and also have the opportunity of talking about issues with people who are experienced in dementia care.

The North Devon Hospice was chosen by me because like many others here in our community I’ve seen at first hand the valuable work done by them, including the care and support they have given to my family, friends and colleagues when suffering from cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.

It is a sad fact that in this day and age charities are at times struggling to maintain the income needed to continue to do the great work they do. I hope that our community will continue to support the North Devon Hospice.
