“Time for a cuppa?” at Queensmead

7th February 2011

Time for a Cuppa day is largely a fundraising event, which takes place annually on the first Monday of February, but it is about more than just raising money. It is about giving people affected by dementia, especially carers, something to look forward to and to plan for after the Festive Season has passed. It is an opportunity to have your friends and family around for a cuppa, a good chat and to support a good cause.

Tea Lovers are coming together to support Dementia UK on Monday 7th Feb by organising a Time for a Cuppa day tea party. There are currently 820,000 people living with dementia in the UK. Money raised from the Tea Parties will help Dementia UK to expand and develop their services to family carers and those affected by dementia across the country.

The event starts at 1045 am until 12 noon at Queensmead, 1 Bronte Avenue, BH23 2LX.

Alison Leclerc Activity Organiser at Care South’s Queensmead care home who is organising the Tea Party says;
“Supporting Dementia UK is very important to me as dementia affects the lives of so many, and the number of people living with dementia is set to rise to over 1 million by the year 2025 Organising my Time for a Cuppa  event has been so much fun and we are really looking forward to meeting people old and new, raising awareness and funds for Dementia UK.

We are inviting other Care South homes along from the local area and we also have a live singer performing who has worked on some of the best cruise boats.”
