The club has made a donation to Young Dementia in memory of long-standing member Martin Sly who, for many years, organised the club's contribution to the Fairport bar at the sports pavilion on the Thursday of the festival weekend each year.  Here is a letter from Young Dementia.

th June 2016 

 To the Members of Cropredy Tennis Club,

 I am writing on behalf of everyone at YoungDementia UK to thank you for recent donation of £XX in memory of Martin Sly.

 YoungDementia UK (YDUK) is the only dedicated national service in the UK for people with young onset dementia and we believe they should not settle for anything less than a life lived well.

5% of people living with dementia in the UK are aged between 30 and 65. However, they are few compared to the vast majority of older people with dementia. Being few, 42,000 out of 800,000, they are nobody’s priority. Your donation will help us to reach out to younger people diagnosed with dementia in parts of the UK where there is little or no support.

We depend on donations to fund over 50% of our services – your support is vital to help us to give younger people with dementia every opportunity to live their lives to the full.

 With grateful thanks once again for your kind support,

 Helen Lerwill

Community Fundraising Manager
