Abingdon Alzheimer’s Autumn Sale

The Alzheimer’s Club had a sale at the Guildhall. The craft objects on offer had been made as an activity by members of the club which meets at Abingdon Community Hospital – Monday to Friday. The money raised was to support that Alzheimer’s Club – which helps provide stimulation and social interaction.
