Brewing and baking for Time for a Cuppa
01 March 2016

 

 

Brewers, bakers, cake decorators and devourers will be coming together on 1 March 2016 at Tameside Hospital Foundation Trust between 1 and 3 pm for a Time for a Cuppa tea party, to help raise funds for more Admiral Nurses (specialist dementia nurses). Dementia UK helps families to face dementia, and the charity’s mission is to ensure that there is an Admiral Nurse for everyone who needs their vital and specialist support.

Pam Kehoe, Admiral nurse at Tameside hospital says: “We’re rallying up brewers, bakers and devourers to take part in our Time for a Cuppa tea party to raise awareness and funds for Dementia UK. It is the only UK charity to offer specialist one-to-one support and expert advice for people living with dementia through its world-class Admiral Nurses. The charity works hand in hand with families, helping them cope with the fear, uncertainty and difficult everyday reality of dementia.”

 Sarah Austin, Community Fundraising Manager, at Dementia UK says: “In providing the compassionate, expert support families need every step of the way we help them to live more positively with dementia in the present, and to face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence. Our approach gives families who are living with dementia a better quality of life through specialist advice, care and support.

We currently have 162 Admiral Nurses across the country and our aim is to increase this number to 200 by the end of 2016. With more funds, Dementia UK will be able to provide more Admiral Nurses, who are a lifeline for many family carers.”
