Good news! We have been selected as a recipient charity for HOPE Volleyball Summerfest 2018

Ding, ding, ding rings the good news bell! We recently learned that The Dementia Society is one of the six charities selected for support from HOPE Volleyball Summerfest 2018, and we are excited to be able to share the good news with you!
