The Burroughs Care home says “Come in for a cuppa” to raise cash for Dementia UK

February 24th 2012

Residents at Care UK’s The Burroughs care home in West Drayton are opening their doors to their local community to raise money for Dementia UK as part of Time for a Cuppa day, on Monday 27th February.

Time for a Cuppa is about bringing people together across the country to hold an event at home, in the workplace or in the community to help raise much-needed funds to support the work of Dementia UK, a charity dedicated to improving life for people with dementia.

The Burroughs’ manager Matthew Bowden said: “We will be making a big afternoon of it with special cakes and buns to go with the teas and coffees and some of our residents will be helping out with the serving. We have invited friends, carers and relatives along with people and organisations from the local community and any members of the public who would like to come along.

We have publicised the event widely and we are hoping for a good turnout as we want to raise as much as possible for Dementia UK. Some of our residents have dementia so this is a cause close to our hearts.   The number of people with dementia is increasing but there is a lot that can be done and the money helps to provide everything from advice through to special equipment.

“We also provide support for carers, for example we have respite care facilities at The Burroughs which provide those looking after people with dementia with a well earned break whilst we can care for their loved ones in a stimulating environment.”

Matthew said the afternoon tea event was also intended to raise awareness of issues surrounding dementia.

He added that the care home which also provides palliative care would be looking to hold an event later in the year to support a local cancer charity.    

The Time for a Cuppa event will be held in the downstairs lounge between 2pm and 4pm on Monday February 27th.
