This week I photographed the lovely Shirley Pearce from Understanding Dementia UK…I have been admiring Shirley’s work on dementia awareness for quite a few years now. She organises many events, one of the most significant of them being the charity Barn Dance in Twyford (see some photographs of one of her past events here), and she also does lots of free talks to educate people on various issues related to dementia and trains on how to care for people with dementia.Her trainings are available for health and care professionals as well as to the families who need to care for someone with dementia.

Shirley needed a head shot for a magazine article, as well as for her new website:

Shirley will be holding a series of dementia awareness talks in May – see the schedule below.

The next Understanding Dementia charity Barn Dance will be taking place on the 18th of May in the Loddon Hall in Twyford. It’s a fun community event raising money for a very good cause!

One of the raffle prizes is a photo-session with ABL Photography.
