REPoD events and presentations

From time to time you will find details here of events and presentations that REPoD is actually hosting or will have a presence at where you will be able to come along and talk to us.

Natalia's walk across Dartmoor

Last year, the Chair of REPoD, Geri Parlby, lost her brother, aged just 67, who had battled with Fronto-Temporal Dementia for over a decade.  In May 2016, his daughter Natalia is walking from Exeter to Plymouth across Dartmoor to raise money for Alzheimer's Research UK (ARUK) in his memory.  She expects to complete this walk within three days.

If you would like to support her and ARUK then this is her Just Giving Page
