Dementia Care.

There are now 5 Dementia Cafes open in the borough that provides a tremendous service to Dementia sufferers, unfortunately the funding required to maintain these cafes is not enough to ensure them continuing their work.
There will be a FUNDRAISING event at PROSPECT HOUSE, BOLTON ROAD, ATHERTON on Saturday SEPTEMBER 6th from 10-00am to 4-00pm. The name of the event is,
" Have your cake & eat it "
The competition is a CAKE baking competition which everyone can enter, the idea is that people enter their home made cakes in the competition at £2.00 per cake, you can enter as many cakes as you want, the cakes will then be judged ands following the judging the cakes will be sold off, either as slices or full cakes, there will also be a Children`s section where children will be able to decorate pre-baked cakes to enter their own competition at a cost of £1.00 Per cake, again there will be no limit on the number of cakes they can enter.
After the judging of the children`s competition the children can take their cakes home.
During the day there will be raffles to raise extra funds and refreshments will be available from the BBQ that will be there.
A website is being set up called dementia buddies and it is hoped that this will be linked to other groups who support dementia care, this will create a network of dementia cafes and groups so that details of ALL events can be made available to everyone who suffers from dementia or is involved in dementia care.
One of the targets is to make ATHERTON the first dementia friendly town in the country.
If you can donate anything that can be used as a prizes please contact Terry Daly on 01942 603175 or 07412 521040 or at terrydaly1@sky.com
There is also an email address for further information about Dementia Care, it is

Kind Regards
