In addition to acting as Trustee for the charity, John also chairs the Fundraising and Awareness Committee where focus is on raising the profile of the charity and securing financial assistance from islanders and businesses.
I saw first-hand the wonderful work the JAA do when they supported my dad and provided advice and respite for my mum a few years back. My mum is still an active volunteer and I wanted to support her efforts and also give some time to the charity in memory of my dad.
Dementia is a public health priority and a fast-growing problem; we have the opportunity in Jersey to give the very best support to people living with dementia and those amazing people who care for them. My aim is to support the JAA in pursuit of its goals, to increase dementia awareness and promote a dementia-friendly society.
John is a proud Jerseyman who loves spending time on the water.
