Scott Mitchell, and over 112,000 people who’ve signed our open letter calling on the Government to Fix Dementia Care.
Former EastEnders actress Barbara Windsor has hand-delivered a letter to Downing Street on Monday, calling for more to be done for dementia suffers.
The 82-year-old has avoided the public limelight since she was diagnosed with the Alzheimer’s disease in 2014.
Ms Windsor earlier recorded a thank you video to everyone who has supported the campaign and signed the letter.
“Thank you all so much for showing your support in signing the letter to our new Prime Minister. It means so much. Let’s make this happen, and fix dementia care,” she said.
The Eastenders star did turn on the Christmas Lights in Borehawood, near Elstree TV Studios.
