Brecon Dementia Friendly Community has been nominated to benefit from Abergavenny Waitrose Community Matters Scheme. Those who shop at Waitrose will be familiar with the 'green tokens' provided at the checkout desk which can then be placed into a box to support a local good cause. We are delighted that Brecon DFC has been chosen to benefit, and all the monies raised will go directly to help those in our community either living with dementia, or caring for someone with dementia.
Since it's launch in 2008 the Community Matters Scheme has helped raise £14 million for local good causes - each month every branch donates £1,000 (£500 from convenience stores) to charities selected by local people.
Watch this space to see how well Brecon DFC does!
