A massive thank you from my heart. Over the last year, in fact the last years since I started a campaign from my bedroom whilst caring for my beautiful mum I have met the most amazing, kind and caring people, in person via my blog, by letter, email and Twitter
I started a campaign as Mum and I were painfully lonely and struggling to cope or understand what was happening within, around and beside us.
I want to thank you all for the great kindness, encouragement, guidance and support we have had since the campaign started with my walk to collect life stories, then on to the Dementia Carer Voices project to this present day.
Over the the last year I have given around 180 talks and well over 300 since the campaign started. I have been so lucky to have had the opportunity to make many FILMS and try my best to raise awareness, always as a son, and trying to keep the promise I made my mum.
I am so overwhelmed that we have now reached what I believe is over half a million views, reads, pledges on my blog, films and tour, speaking to around 12,000 people on my tour this year alone.
