Residents at various Ideal Carehomes made'Time for a Cuppa' earlier this month by hosting an event to raise money for Dementia UK.
Our homes opened their doors to the local community providing hot drinks, home-made cakes and a good old natter, all for a very worthy cause.
Dementia UK offers specialist one-to-one support and expert advice for people living with dementia. Sarah Austin, Community Fundraising Manager at Dementia UK, said:
'We want to thank Ideal Carehomes for their support and for raising funds for Dementia UK by making 'Time for a Cuppa' - we hope that the residents and staff enjoyed themselves!'
The'Time for a Cuppa'week ran from 1st to 8th March and is a UK wide event to raise money for families facing dementia. With the help of their Regional Activity Executives, our homes put together hampers which were raffled off to raise money for the charity.
