A craft fair and holistic therapy event has raised £800 for a Doncaster-based dementia charity.

The event that raised money for DonMentia at the Point featured craft stalls, refreshments and the chance for visitors to try out holistic therapies for themselves.

Visitors were also able to enjoy the Georgia Meadows exhibition on dementia and aging.

£800 was collected on the day with more money continuing to come in

The money will be used for MP3 players and headphones to be used for music therapy for the Memory Clinic at Tickhill Road.

Eileen set up DonMentia after her husband died from dementia at the Doncaster Royal Infirmary.

The charity is for Doncaster people affected by the disease, and it supports a range of dementia organisations, spending the money in Doncaster.

The next DonMentia event will be the Bentley Bonanza on July 13. If you have items that can be sold at the event contact eileenharrington@talktalk.net.
