Along with their dad, Frank, the four sisters spent a wonderful afternoon with their family, friends and neighbours reminiscing and chatting over cups of tea and cream buns whilst raising much needed funds for Alzheimer’s Society.

Angela McAteer, one of the sisters, said, ‘We thoroughly enjoyed the event and were completely overwhelmed with the support we received for our Afternoon Tea in memory of Mummy.

Angela added, “I am very proud that our fundraising efforts will help make a real difference for the charity and I know that Mum would have been very proud too.”

Maeveen McNabb, Community Fundraiser for Alzheimer’s Society in Tyrone said, “We are extremely grateful to Frank Hughes and his daughters Angela, Ann, Bronagh and Marie for all the time and energy they put into this Afternoon Tea for Alzheimer’s Society.

“As a charity, we rely on the generosity of families like the Hughes’ to help us support people to live well with dementia today and fund research to find a cure for tomorrow.

Maeveen added, “We would like to wish the entire Hughes family the best of luck at the Stormont Memory Walk, joining thousands of others who are walking together for a world without dementia.”
