The bus was brought to the attention of the team at the hub by Davina Biswell who is a champion of Dementia Friends, as a result of her own family experience.
Those attending found the experience both moving and insightful with comments including "it has totally changed my thought process on how to help my mum - I can't tell you how much it has helped me" and "an amazing experience".
