Newark Dementia Carers Group is delighted to be the latest winners of the Ringrose Law Community Project Scheme ‘A Grand Idea’ and today were presented with a cheque for £1,000 to help towards the funding for the charity.

Newark Dementia Careers Group was formed to provide a self- help group in Newark for people affected by Dementia and other memory loss conditions. The group meet regularly with meetings open to new members, and organises various activities for everyone throughout the year.

The £1,000 donation will go towards providing further days out for the group members and their carers throughout the year.

Kenneth Daubney, Chairman for the Group explains why this is so important for sufferers of Dementia;

“We recognise the importance of encouraging people to escape the loneliness of this disease by joining into the group activities, so we want to offer a varying itinerary for them.”

The group started with an “Idea” to help to beat the loneliness and isolation that surrounds carers and their people affected by dementia, so by winning this Grand Idea we will be able to provide further activities for them. Many thanks to all who voted for us and to the Ringrose Law Community Scheme for providing this grant for good courses. Together we can help to beat the effects this terrible disease has on families with grants like this to enable them to get out and do things.”

A Grand Idea was launched in 2013 by Ringrose Law, who committed to give an impressive £1,000 each to six different charities/community groups across Lincolnshire and Newark every year. A Grand Idea winners last year included the Children’s Bereavement Centre in Newark, St Andrew’s Children’s Hospice, Home-Start Grantham and Age UK Spalding.

Amy Codd, Head of the Newark Office, at Ringrose Law comments;

“We are delighted that Newark Dementia Carers Group has won the Grand Idea Scheme in Newark for 2015. Such an important charity for dementia sufferers in the area, we really hope the £1,000 makes a big difference to those suffering with the disease and to their carers.”

A Grand Idea is continuing throughout 2015 in Boston, Spalding, Lincoln and Grantham. If any community project or charity would like to send an application go to for more information.
