HEARTFELT RAFFLE: The owners of a dementia-friendly Sidmouth restaurant are raising money for a charity that is close to their hearts.

Sarah Ralph’s mum has Alzheimer’s, so she has endeavoured to make Graze accessible to people with similar conditions.

She and husband Damon are putting on a raffle to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society, with prizes including a cream tea for two and many more donated by their local suppliers.

Graze is marking Dementia Awareness Week, which runs from May 19 to 25.

Raffle tickets are £1, and each one gives five chances to win.
