May I say a huge thankyou to all the people who supported this year’s ‘Time for a Cuppa’ in aid of Dementia UK at Kirkheaton Community Centre.
We made over £715 .00 – final amount to be advertised when all the money is totalled up.
I cannot tell you how much your support is appreciated. To those who attended the event, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

Thankyou so much to so many who helped, i don’t want to name them, they know who they are and without them we couldn’t raised such a fantastic sum of money for Dementia UK.

I also wanted to say at the event, but didn’t feel that i could without getting emotional, how fortunate we are in Kirklees to have specialist Admiral nurses. Not all areas in the UK are so fortunate as we are in Kirklees. Rachel, my Admiral nurse (& her husband Dan and daughter Alice) were busy at the event. I honestly wouldn’t have managed these last 5 years without her support.
Being Dementia UK Ambassadors is one way that we can spread the word about the support that there is out there for families facing dementia.

I am hoping to move forward in making Kirkheaton a dementia friendly village – watch this space…………………………

Thanks again and once again thankyou for all your support
Jean and Maureen
