World Elder Abuse Awareness Day
A cause near and dear to the team at Abbeylawn Manor Retirement Home, the Rock with Ages event raises awareness for World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD).
The event brings people of all ages together to enjoy live music, many vendors, a yummy BBQ, silent auction and much more.
All proceeds go to Durham Elder Abuse Network.
