Chapel house and University of Chester Pledge to make a difference


With great thanks to Cathrina Moore RMN RGN Admiral Nurse for  kindly inviting Tommy  to speak at the Chapel House Admiral Nurse launch and fundraiser on April 8th and for bringing him along to talk to Nursing Students on the same day.

The night was very inspiring and it was wonderful to see so many people coming together to give their support, and we look forward to following the Chapel House Dementia Resource Community pledge tree launched on the evening.


In the afternoon before the launch Catherina and Tommy popped over to speak to Nursing students at the University, and we’d like to give another massive thanks to all the students who took time to attend.
