The Wymondham Dementia Support Group has launched an appeal to get together 17,000 knitted and crocheted forget-me-nots, one for every person in Norfolk living with dementia.
The group’s organiser, Dianne Fernee, said the campaign was to highlight the lack of Admiral nurses, who are specialists in dementia.
Mrs Fernee said: “Admiral nurses are a lifeline for people with dementia, but there are only two of them serving 17,000 people, which isn’t nearly enough.
