Following the success of our 25th anniversary conference and black tie gala last October,we will be hosting our inaugural summer ball. 

Set to be one of the highlights of the fundraising social calendar, the Ball, which will be held on Saturday 24th August and hosted by Sky Sports' PETE GRAVES at the prestigious Assembly Rooms in Newcastle will comprise a three-course dinner with live entertainment, music and a charity auction.

Open to businesses and individuals to attend, we hope that the Ball will help to raise vital funds to enable Dementia Matters to further develop the residential care services at its Bradbury Centre site near Newcastle.

“Over the last 12 months, we have been slowly converting unused space and former offices into residential bedrooms at The Bradbury Centre,” said Dr Fraser Quin, chief executive at Dementia Matters.

“For many people living with dementia, moving into residential care can be incredibly scary and disorientating and can cause their condition to deteriorate faster. Research has shown that providing bespoke care in a more intimate environment helps people to feel more settled more quickly which is why we have opted to grow our care service in gradual stages.

“We have now completed two phases of development at the Centre to create 8 state-of-the-art, dementia friendly bedrooms but due to a high level of demand from existing service users as well as new enquiries, we are now looking to create even more.

“In order to achieve this, we need to fund raise £300,000 for important building work and renovations. We hope that the auction at our Charity Ball in August will go a long way to help achieve this goal but above all, we just want everybody to come along and have a good time!”

Tickets are available to purchase now at £550 for a table of 10 or £55 for individual seats.
