Club 500 - Supporting Local Charities

Published: 03/08/2022

With an estimated 850,000 Dementia sufferers in the UK, it's almost certain that at some point dementia will touch and shape our lives in one form or another.
 
This month we received a nomination for a dementia support group in Wivenhoe which works with the local community to provide support and information for people affected by dementia.  The group maintains a list of organisations and contacts to help signpost the residents there if they have any concerns or questions regarding dementia whilst at the same time encouraging the locals there to become 'dementia friends'. (https://www.dementiafriends.org.uk).
 
Last summer the group initiated The Friendly Club & Cafe which is based in St Marys Church on Thursday afternoons and is run by volunteers. The Friendly Club & Cafe is open to all the community who wants to pop in and especially welcomes people with dementia and their families which enables all to meet people and socialise amongst friends and in great surroundings.
 
I am waiting to hear back from the group on how they would like to receive our donation.
