A WELLINGTON dementia awareness charity is encouraging businesses to get involved in a red and yellow day.

Reminiscence Learning is coordinating the event to take place during dementia awareness week, from May 15 to 21.

The charity is hoping businesses throughout the town will throw a red and yellow-themed event in order to raise money to buy a piece of its 100-piece dementia awareness jigsaw.
