In Memoriam

We wish to express our gratitude for these donations from collections in memoriam:

 

 2018

John Gregory Williamson 1946 – 2018

John and his wife Lori Hayden took part in A4D workshops and up until his final few weeks John attended Clay for Dementia.  He was a joy and everyone felt the magic that the workshops made on John’s journey.  Projects like these made such a difference that Lori has set up an award in John’s name along with Dementia Pathfinders for the best project that enhances the life of someone with dementia and their families.  See the link to the award here.

Our thanks to Lori, family and friends for their kind donations.
