A dementia group has reached a new milestone after becoming a registered charity, which means it can now benefit from a variety of tax reliefs.
Holt and District Dementia Support is holding a celebration and re-launch event on Friday, February 1, which will be attended by North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb.
It will be held in the meeting room at St Andrew's Church in Holt, between 12pm and 2pm.
The group was founded in 2014 and provides a weekly dementia-friendly Poppy café and a home visiting service which enables carers to have a much-needed break and other social activities, including vintage cinema sessions.
The group is entirely reliant on volunteers to provide its services so is keen to welcome local people to the event and promote what it does.
