August’s Cream Tea event was organised by the Withiel Village Hall Social Group in aid of the Bodmin Memory Cafe and carer support group; the Maureen Lloyd Music Group; and the Village Hall.
“It was great to see a room full of people having fun, enjoying a Cornish Cream Tea and a good natter. The event was well supported by locals and those associated with the charities and finished with a singalong, ably led by Maureen Lloyd,” says Stephen Horrocks of the Hall Social Group.
“The total raised by the event was £348.54, some of this was direct donations to the charities, which we have split evenly between the two. The balance was split three ways between the two charities and the Village Hall. We raised £122 for each of the charities and £104.54 for the Village Hall.
“A big thank you to all those who came along to support this event and the kind donations of others who were unable to attend. Also, a big thank you to Brenda Harris who baked the scones and the saffron buns.”
The Memory Cafe focuses on providing an opportunity for those living with dementia and their carers to meet in a relaxed, informal and welcoming environment.
The Maureen Lloyd Music Group was started in 2019 and uses music and singing to improve interaction, socialising and quality of life for those impacted by dementia.
