Story

[p]The inspiration that was our Dad/Pops Dennis Freeman continues to inspire us, as we raise money in his name.[/p][p]Our amazing Dad/Pops and our family lived with the impact of dementia over a number of years. Those that knew Den knew the amazing man he was. We lost our Dad/Pops in August 2020 and due to the Covid-19 pandemic many people were unable to come and pay their last respects. [/p][p]Well here’s your chance! [/p][p]We have decided, as a way to remember him, and for people to show their appreciation and acknowledge his life, we would raise money for Bridges Centre Monmouth, a charity that as a family we hold close to our hearts.[/p][p]Den attended Social Circles, a group run by Bridges to support the local older generation by offering two social sessions a week. Social Circles offers its users a regular, in many cases their only opportunity to meet others and enjoy a cooked lunch & tea and biscuits. [/p][p]It gave our Dad/Pops a reason to put his tie on, and provided him with an opportunity to socialise and make new friends. The volunteers at Bridges are truly amazing, they always made him feel welcome. This was noticeable by the beaming smile on his face whenever he attended! [/p][p]Den’s son Mathew and his daughter in-law Lesley plan to run 71 miles (1 mile for ever year of his life) starting on the 20th October and finishing on 28th November. Other family members are planning to add to that mileage by either walking or running. Every step taken will allow us to remember Den as well as contributing to this amazing cause. [/p][p]Thank you Bridges for giving our Dad/Pops the enjoyment he got out of attending Social Circles. We hope that any money raised here will enable you to provide that enjoyment to many other in the future.[/p][p][br][/p]
