EC Financial Services present their latest grant to Dementia Adventure

EC Financial Services are delighted to present their latest grant to Dementia Adventure, who specialise in designing and delivering supported short breaks and holidays for people living with dementia, as well as their family and carers.

The money will be used to subsidise the cost of one holiday for someone who may not otherwise get the opportunity to go away. On 31 October 2017, Michael MacLeod and Eve Allum from ECFS went to discuss the great work they do. In 2018, they hope to run 30 holidays which takes a great deal of organisation and effort. It is great to see Dementia Adventure being recognised nationally, although they do focus on Essex.

Michael now hopes to continue his support by fundraising for them in future.
