A day care centre worker spoke to a Lions club about the work the centre does for people with mental health problems, including dementia.

Georgie Bell, from the Merle Boddy Day Care Centre, gave an inspirational talk to Swaffham Lions.

She revealed how the centre engages with clients to give them the best care whilst giving their carers respite. It has up to 15 clients at any one time.

The second part of the presentation was interactive, with the Lions members split into two groups singing two different songs at the same time - which demonstrated how a confused mind works.

She also had a game which involved picking up balls with litter-picking tongs and putting them in a bucket whilst wearing special cloudy spectacles.
