Funds raised from the workshop will be donated to Dementia UK and Alzheimer's Society.

By 2025, it is expected that one million people in the UK will have been diagnosed with dementia.

This is the first of two charity workshops planned for this year.

The second, 'Hips for the Hospice', is to be staged September 7, in aid of St Elizabeth Hospice in Ipswich.
