Hi, I would be interested in hearing from anybody who has had experience in the above type of event. My Mother and Sister are participating in the "Trek the Inca trail in Peru" between 17 - 26 May 2005. I am co-ordinating the majority of the fund raising for this (Mum says she wishes she could do more but then I remind here how much effort is required to do the trek). My Father was diagnosed with Dementia with Lewy Bodies in 1999 (a year before he was due to retire), and is currently in full-time nursing care. He provided us with so much in life, and his has been cut short (so to speak) - and I think that is one of the devastating things about this disease. I would also be grateful if anyone would be able to donate prizes for a raffle (to be held at a the main fund raising event - a Gala Ball). Please contact me for further details. The last Ball I was at had things like signed rugby/football shirts etc. If you know anyone who plays for a team OR could help in anyway, please get in touch. ALL help would be great.
