Boreham Wood Football Club are delighted to announce that they have once again committed to a local charity and through the chairman have been able to make a donation of £1,000 to the local Dementia Club.
As a community football club, BWFC pride themselves on the work that they are able to do within Borehamwood, Elstree and the local surrounding area and hope their support goes in some small way in helping this excellent programme progress.
The Dementia Support group was formed in 2016, by Town Councillors Sandra Parnell, Eric Silver and Pat Strack, with the support of Sasha Capocci and Dr Ann Goddard.
They launched in July 2017 with Dementia Club UK and are now be running their own Elstree and Borehamwood Dementia Club. The Club is supported by Elstree and Borehamwood Town Council, Tesco and Rotary.
BWFC Chairman Danny Hunter said: “I’ve recently lost my mother to this disease like many other local people and we all need a bit of help at times. Therefore, if I can help our local Dementia Club in some small way, either through myself or the football club then I simply consider it a privilege.”
On the generous donation, Town councillor Sandra Parnell commented: “Danny Hunter is a very generous and kind person who has supported our Dementia Club since we started over a year ago.
Without his help we really would have been struggling so we would like to pass on our sincere thanks as we are so extremely grateful and fortunate to have met.”
