PLOUGH and Flail manager Caroline Terrington and her team have been thanked for supporting the UK’s leading dementia charity.

Caroline runs the Mobberley pub, which is staging a fun-filled day in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society.

The team at the Plough and Flail pub are organising Mobbfest on Saturday, July 21, and aim to raise as much money as possible.

They are planning a day of live singers and local bands, accompanied by fairground games, a bouncy castle, independent craft stalls, outdoor bars, a barbecue and charity raffle.

Caroline said: “We have decided to organise Mobbfest for the Alzheimer’s Society in memory of a close family friend, Sally Townsend, who loved festivals, family and the outdoors - so what a brilliant way to celebrate her life.

“It’s great to think that I will be raising funds to help support people living with dementia now and to fund research to one day find a cure for dementia.”

Sally’s family said: “We lost our mum to dementia two years ago. Our mum was the life and soul of a party, and loved nothing more than a good celebration.

“We have many awesome memories partying with her, at Glastonbury, her own Tumblefest, Amsterdam and many other gigs.

“She loved music, people and fun. We couldn’t think of a better way to honour her memory than with our own festival.”

Alzheimer's Society community fundraiser Ashley Pennington said: “It’s wonderful that Sally’s family and the team at the Plough and Flail are giving their time to support the Alzheimer’s Society.

“Dementia devastates lives, but dementia won’t win. Until the day we find a cure we will be here for anyone affected by dementia, where they are, whatever they’re going through.

“We need more people to join us now and unite against dementia.”

Mobb Fest runs from 12pm until dusk, and you can buy your tickets at or call 01565 873537 for more details.

Alzheimer's Society is the UK's leading dementia charity. It provides information and support, fund research, campaign to improve care and create lasting change for people affected by dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Alzheimer’s Society research shows that 850,000 people in the UK have a form of dementia.

By 2021 one million people will be living with the condition. This will rise to two million by 2051.

Dementia deaths are rising year on year, and 225,000 will develop dementia this year - that’s one every three minutes.

Alzheimer’s Society funds research into the cause, care, cure and prevention of all types of dementia and has committed to spend at least £150 million on research over the next decade.

This includes a £50 million investment in the UK's first dedicated Dementia Research Institute.
