and District Branch of The Royal British Legion thank local Gallery
When the owners of Driftwood Gallery in Sheringham heard that one of our
Poppy Collection boxes had been stolen from St Peter's Church, Sheringham,
like us they were very upset.
Instead of just hearing about it and doing nothing, they very kindly
donated a Poppy Print and organised a raffle to raise funds to replace those
£141.00 was raised and we as a Branch would like to express our thanks
for their kindness.

month ago we asked our e-campaigners to email the Secretary of State for
Health, asking him to ensure that dementia diagnosis rates were made a key
metric in the new CCG scorecards.
Clinical Commissioning Groups, or CCGs, are the organisations that are
responsible for managing the local health services in your area. They are
responsible for ensuring that things like referrals are timely and
medications are appropriate, but they have a lot of different priorities.
It's essential that dementia is one of them.
Almost 4000 of you emailed Jeremy Hunt MP, asking him to include dementia
diagnosis rates in the new CCG rating system. Last week, he announced that
he would be working with Alzheimer’s Society to review key statistics on
dementia to be included on the scorecard, which is great news for everyone
affected by dementia.
