Wesley Tate from Lisburn, celebrated this 50th birthday on September 23 and in lieu of gifts he asked everyone to make a donation to Dementia NI.

Wesley explained: “I decided for my 50th birthday I wanted to raise money for charity instead of receiving presents and Dementia NI was an obvious choice. I have seen first-hand the debilitating effect dementia can have on individuals and their families. I was pleased to hear that the charity wants to educate more people about dementia and raise awareness and support those affected. I would like to thank everyone who donated so generously. I am overwhelmed with everyone’s kindness”.
