UNSUNG heroes shared the limelight at the opening of the Magdalen Memory Club this week.

It was the culmination of months of fund raising and planning by the selfless team of volunteers that run the club.

There was no room for any more members to join St Andrews Memory Club in Gorleston's so it was decided to set the new club up on the town's Magdalen estate.

Great Yarmouth Mayor Terry Easter cut the ribbon at Magdalen Methodist Church to mark the occasion on Wednesday.

The new club meets each Wednesday providing lunches, activities entertainment and outings for dementia and Alzheimer's sufferers along with much needed respite for families and carers.

Memory club organiser Mel Thomas said: “We decided to open the new club as St Andrews had become a victim of its own success, lots of people wanted to join but there were no places.

“It was a lovely occasion and just reward for all the hard work by our volunteers and supporters. We rely entirely on donations to keep supporting these vulnerable people.”
