Residents, visitors and staff took part in two events to raise funds for Dementia UK's Time for a Cuppa appeal. On Tuesday 28th February, afternoon tea was accompanied by some fun exercise for the "grey cells" in the form of quizzes and crosswords. The following afternoon, accordion player Hazel Brunier played a wide variety of well-known tunes and got her appreciative audience singing along as they enjoyed more tea and some delicious cakes. Over £260 was raised in total.
Money raised from the Time for a Cuppa parties held across the country will help Dementia UK to expand and develop their services to reach more family carers and those affected by dementia. In theUK it is estimated that 25 million people have a close friend or family member with dementia.
