attending and shortlisted for  the Roses Awards in London on Thursday,with respect to all the others shortlisted

With great thanks to Independent Age and Barchester care, my wee Tommyontour campaign has been shortlisted for a roses media award for coverage of issues around dementia and /or social carer .I have to say I am very proud ,with my wee mum passing away 5 weeks ago and this campaign being started with her story and added to by so many others sharing theirs ,I feel its important to go down and represent my mum and all who have been the heart and soul of this campaign (I have not been out in years at night time never mind stayed out over night so it all a bit of nervy occasion )
Thank you
