"As a family, we raise money for Dementia UK but we thought it would be nice to put some funding into the local community.

"When my mum had her 70th birthday last year, we asked family and friends to donate money to Movement 4Memory.

"We also had a New Year's Eve party at Donington Community Centre where all the money went to the dementia café.

"I'd like to thank all my friends, family and everybody who attended both events, all those who donated and helped arranged everything."
