Amanda becomes Patron of Everton Charity
Amanda has announced that she is now a patron of Everton Football Club's award winning charity - Everton in the Community.
Amanda managed to squeeze in a visit to the charity before Britains Got Talent last week whilst in Liverpool for the auditions.
Taking part in the 'Pass on the Memories' program, she participated in games and quizzes with Dementia sufferers and their carers from the Merseyside area and was touched by the warm hearts and humour within the group.
“You are never alone when you are a part of Everton in the Community, it very much feels like a family and you are always made to feel welcome.”
Dementia is a topic that is already close to Amanda's heart, as her grandfather sadly lost his battle with the illness in 2007. Amanda thought the The 'Pass on the Memories' idea was fantastic for Dementia sufferers. They carry out fun activities that exercise the brains & memories of Dementia sufferers to help slow the deterioration, but it also provide a safe place to meet, make friends, and discuss their problems.
Everton in the Community was established in 1988 and is an award-winning charity which delivers over 60 programmes to support the most vulnerable and underprivileged people in Merseyside. The charities amazing work, along with Amanda already being an Evertonian, make the perfect match.
After an hour or so, some selfies and a cup of tea, Amanda had to dash to make a quick change for the Britains Got Talent Auditions that afternoon, however hopes to make another visit in the near future.
