People in Abbots Langley are being invited for a cuppa at a pub in the village later this month in aid of Dementia UK.
The event is being organised by Michelle Hamilton in memory of her grandmother who lived with vascular dementia for years before she died last April.
Michelle explained: “Time for a Cuppa is a lovely opportunity to spend time with friends and family, while raising funds for Admiral Nurses. Looking after somebody with dementia can be very challenging, and Admiral Nurses help the entire family cope.”
Dr. Hilda Hayo, Chief Admiral Nurse at Dementia UK said: “A diagnosis of dementia can be frightening and isolating, for the person but for their family too. ‘Time for a Cuppa’ is all about spending time with the people we care about, while fundraising for more Admiral Nurses to support these families. I’m very grateful to Michelle for holding a tea party and helping us bring this life-changing support to even more people.”
The event promises lots of tea and cake, together with a raffle supported by local Abbots Langley businesses. If you’d like to come along or make a donation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are currently 217 Admiral Nurses working across England, Scotland and Wales and Dementia UK’s target is to have 300 in place by 2020.
