Dementia campaigner Tony launches book

THIS autumn has marked a milestone for dementia campaigner Tony Hall.

It’s been a decade since he and his wife Barbara launched Bristol Dementia Action Alliance at Westbury Baptist Church and in September he launched his book at the charity’s second annual awards event.

Tony cared for Barbara, who lived with dementia for over 20 years before sadly dying last year. His book: A Bucketful of Patience, living with dementia  describes the highs and lows of that life.

All profits from the book go to BDAA. 

The annual awards celebrate and showcase the achievements of businesses and organisations across Bristol. With an estimated 900,000 people living with dementia in the UK and around 5,000 in Bristol – a number predicted to rise substantially over the coming years, BDAA’s work is vitally important. 

Tony said: “BDAA is a small local charity aiming to make Bristol a dementia aware city – something it can’t do without the support of so many others. These awards are a way of recognising and celebrating all the good work that is happening within the local community of Bristol.

A Bucketful of Patience is  published by Bristol Books and costs £12
