This year we honour Wendy Eyre-Gray, a member of the community who has been affected by dementia. “Especially with dementia, people don’t want us to be suffering and they don’t want to hear about it,” Wendy says. “Listen to yourself at every level: mind, heart, soul and body. Honour that and speak to that.” Get your family, friends and colleagues together and join us for an amazing day at the 2019 IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s.
