The Burroughs raises cash for Dementia UK

March 2nd 2012

Our special afternoon tea event, held as part of Time for a Cuppa day, on Monday 27th February raised over £40 for Dementia UK.

Time for a Cuppa was 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 made a big afternoon of it with special cakes and buns to go with the teas and coffees and some of the residents helped out with the serving.  Friends, carers and relatives along with people and organisations from the local community came along so we had a good turnout.

“We wanted to raise as much as possible for Dementia UK. Some of our residents live with dementia so this is a cause close to our hearts.   More and more people are suffering from this now but there is a lot that can be done and the money helps to provide everything from advice through to special equipment.”
