March travel agent's dementia fundraiser
Staff at a March travel agency are inviting you to join them for a cuppa next week – and help raise money for Dementia UK.
The team at Central England Co-operative Travel in Broad Street have seen members of their families affected by dementia and are joining the charity’s annual tea party, Time for a Cuppa, from 9am-5pm on Wednesday, March 4.
Branch manager, Natasha Thatcher, says: “We’re all really excited to make Time for a Cuppa for Dementia UK.
“Dementia has touched the lives of family members in the team at Central England Co-operative at March, so we would like our event to be a real success and highlight the incredible work which Admiral Nurses do, and this very worthy charity, whilst also raising funds.
“We are really looking forward to inviting the community into our store at 34 Broad Street to join us for a cup of tea and some cake.”
Staff are sprinkling the final bits of icing sugar on their cakes and drying off their mugs ready to bring together colleagues, customers, neighbours, friends and family over a cuppa and some cake to raise money for more dementia specialist Admiral Nurses, who give life-changing support to families facing dementia.
When things get challenging or difficult, Admiral Nurses work alongside families, giving them the compassionate one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions that help them face dementia with more confidence and less fear.
Dr Hilda Hayo, Chief Admiral Nurse and CEO at Dementia UK, said: “Since Time for a Cuppa began, it has raised over £850,000 to provide more dementia specialist Admiral Nurses.
“We are so grateful to everyone who has taken part over the years and we’re looking forward to welcoming more seasoned and aspiring bakers and tea brewers like Co-operative Travel in March.”
