Dare Devil Heights for Dementia

An East Sussex lady, whose husband Derek resides at Clifden House dementia care centre, completed a dare devil wing walk to raise awareness and help reduce the stigma of dementia.

Delia Spindlow, whose husband was diagnosed with dementia a few years ago said, “It’s hard when someone close to you has dementia. While my husband is lucky enough to be in the superb care of Clifden House Dementia Care Centre in Seaford, I still wanted to do something to raise further awareness of this debilitating disease.”

Delia’s wing walk challenge took place on 23 September and helped raise money for Eastbourne Dementia Action Alliance, with the staff at Clifden House donating to the fundraising efforts.

Nial Joyce of Clifden House said: “I don’t think I’d ever be brave enough to do something like that! Everyone at Clifden House would like to congratulate Delia on completing her wing walk and raising money for a great cause – Eastbourne Dementia Action Alliance.”
