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
" 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 email@example.com
There is also an email address for further information about Dementia
Care, it is
