The Framlingham community have fundraised over £100 for Dementia UK by raising a cuppa at Mills Meadow care home. Care UK colleagues and residents at Mills Meadow on Fore Street in the town organised a tea party with games, a raffle, a jumble sale and a cake sale as part of Dementia UK’s national Time for a Cuppa campaign.
Mills Meadow activities coordinator, Roz Ingate, says: “The tea party was great fun and it was a wonderful opportunity for the residents here at Mills Meadow to feel more involved in their local community, whilst also raising vital funds for a worthwhile charity.
We raised £130 in total and we hope we will be able to hold the tea party again next year, when the first phase of the Mills Meadow care home redevelopment will be complete.”
Mills Meadow care home is currently undergoing redevelopment in two stages, as part of Care UK’s £60 million investment into 10 new care homes and wellbeing centres across the county. Residents are living on site throughout the redevelopment and the first stage is scheduled for completion in August 2014.
The money raised at Mills Meadow’s tea party will go towards the vital work of Admiral Nurses, who are mental health nurses that specialise in dementia and are supported by the charity Dementia UK.
