Vote for Bernard to be Derby's Christmas star

It is time to dust off your Santa hat... well just for a moment at least!

We are thrilled to share that Bernard, who has been a dedicated volunteer at our Derby City Dementia Support Service for over 4 years, has been shortlisted to switch on the INTU Derby Christmas lights!

Bernard is an incredible gentleman who has supported so many of our carers to build confidence and self-esteem, grow their social networks and have a fuller, well-balanced lifestyle. You can read his story here

Bernard, who has embraced this with the same gusto he does everything else, had a slot on BBC Radio Derby yesterday morning on the Ian Skye show to discuss this wonderful opportunity. You can listen to his interview here. (01:24)
