Clare Har­ris, Gwynedd Coun­cil De­men­ti­aGo and Aqua In­struc­tor, joined Elvis im­per­son­ator Wynne Roberts as she in­structed the group in their ex­er­cises in the wa­ter.

Wynne agreed to come along to the class to help raise funds for De­men­ti­aGo, the phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity class for peo­ple liv­ing with de­men­tia and their care­givers.

A cof­fee morn­ing and raf­fle was held for the reg­u­lars be­fore they started the class.

Clare said: “It was a fan­tas­tic turnout, with more than 30 of our reg­u­lars tak­ing part and having a thor­oughly good time ex­er­cis­ing and singing along with Elvis.

“The De­men­ti­aGo team would like to thank ev­ery­one in­volved for their fan­tas­tic ef­fort.”

A to­tal of £270 was raised, which will go to­wards spe­cial events and ac­tiv­i­ties for peo­ple liv­ing with de­men­tia to en­hance their lives and help them live well with the dis­ease.

Cllr Craig ab Iago, Gwynedd Coun­cil Cabi­net Mem­ber who leads on leisure, said: “We fully sup­port in­no­va­tive events like this, where peo­ple come to­gether to ex­er­cise and raise aware­ness about de­men­tia.

“The peo­ple who at­tend on a reg­u­lar ba­sis also en­joy the so­cial as­pect and have be­come firm friends. Ex­er­cise is one of the risk fac­tors which can help re­duce the risk of de­men­tia.”
