Dementia cafe event at Villa Park

Aston Villa Foundation played host to a dementia event this morning which was attended by ex-Villa players Tony Daley and Mark Walters. The event was an opportunity for members of the Foundation's regular dementia cafe to meet the legendary Villa wingers and share their memories of watching them play at Villa Park. 

The event was also supported by members of the Dementia Carer Team of Age Concern Birmingham (funded by Forward Carers) and other local organisations who support people with dementia and their families in the West Midlands. Peter Millington and Suzan Roberts (pictured above) were at the event to provide advice and support.
