FUNDS raised by schoolchildren will support people living with dementia and their carers.

Flint High School held an assembly for its year seven students about Lent, explaining the reflective nature of this forty day period in the lead up to Easter.

The assembly was attended by Reverend Brian Harvey, from the Parish Church of St Mary and St David in Flint, who was presented with a cheque for £202.50 from the school raised by donations following the Christmas jumper day.

Reverend Harvey thanked the school for the generous donation which would be spent on the 'Monday Mix Club' at the church, a support club for those living with dementia and their carers.

It offers a safe and supportive place where guests can enjoy meeting and talking to each other in a relaxed environment.

He said: “We are very grateful to the students for their support of our Monday Mix at the Parish church.

"It will enable us to continue to work alongside all our partners in helping Flint to become a truly dementia friendly community.”
