Great honour to receive the Age Scotland Jess Barrow award forcampaigning #dementia #caring

Hi

With great thanks to all from Age Scotland. I feel very honoured to have received the Age Scotland Jess Barrow award 2013 for campaigning on dementia and caring. 

Thank you so much for this award and for a really inspiring evening at the Scottish Parliament. Congratulations to all the nominees and winners across all categories, I was very inspired by all I heard and witnessed . 

I will update more tomorrow with some photos, I am on on my way to Cardiff to speak at the Alzheimer society wales conference. 


Thank you Age Scotland from a son and thanks to everyone who has participated and supported me on this campaign. 

Tommy
