Blyth Valley Staff pay tribute to pool players

Alzheimer’s Society staff have paid tribute to pool players who raised money for the charity in memory of a man who campaigned for people with dementia.

Members of the Blyth Valley Pool Association and the Blyth Valley Pool League united in memory of Keith Hall, who helped raise dementia awareness and funds for research after his wife, Isobel, was diagnosed as having Alzheimer’s at the age of 52.

They came together to play in the first Keith Hall Inter League Cup that was held in memory of fellow pool player Keith, who suddenly died while on holiday last year.

A cheque for £553 was handed to Alzheimer’s Society community support manager Elizabeth Howliston.
