The cost of the table was met after Billy Jeal climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in October 2017.

Billy chose to support the centre as his grandmother Maureen had previously been a day centre client.

Family members, clients and staff celebrated the arrival of the table with a demonstration and refreshments.

The table consists of a series of interactive games that are projected onto a table.

The light games encourage players to reach out towards the images and respond to their arm and hand movements.

Manager Janice Phillips said, “The table has made a difference to the lives of a lot of our clients that attend the day centre and have dementia.”
