Westwood Care Home Hosts Heartwarming “Time for a Cuppa” Event in Support of Dementia UK

Westwood Care Home hosted a heartwarming event, “Dementia UK – Time for a Cuppa,” on the 2nd of May 2024, bringing together a community to support those affected by dementia. The event was organised by the dedicated staff, aiming to raise funds for dementia while fostering a sense of togetherness and support.

The coffee morning, held in the day centre, saw a wonderful turnout from staff, residents, family members, friends, and members of the public. Attendees were treated to a delightful spread of homemade cakes, tea, and coffee, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere.

In addition to enjoying refreshments, guests had the opportunity to participate in a lively tombola, contributing to the fundraising efforts. The room buzzed with joy and happiness as everyone came together to show their support for this important cause.

“Dementia UK Time for a Cuppa” is not only a fundraising initiative but also a testament to the power of community and compassion. Events like these play a crucial role in raising awareness and understanding of dementia while providing much-needed support to those affected.

Natasha and Chloe, Wellbeing Leads at Westwood Care Home, expressed their gratitude for the overwhelming support, stating, “Events like ‘Dementia UK – Time for a Cuppa’ are vital in our mission to raise funds and awareness for dementia. The turnout and enthusiasm from everyone involved are truly heartening, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to come together as a community.”

Across the Runwood Homes group, all homes will be supporting ‘Dementia UK – Time for a Cuppa’ week, and we look forward to continuing its efforts in supporting worthy causes and inviting everyone to join in future initiatives.
