David & Joan's celebration

David and Joan - Donation in Lieu Website

David and Joan celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary surrounded by their family and friends. Joan has been living with Alzheimer’s disease for 11 years, so they kindly decided to use their special occasion to ask for donations to Alzheimer’s Research UK instead of presents. They raised £150 to help us fund more dementia research.
