Specsavers Bromsgrove hosted a coffee morning to raise money and awareness for Dementia UK.
The team offered tea, coffee and cakes to customers in exchange for a donation as part of the ‘Time for a Cuppa’ initiative on Monday 2 March.
‘We wanted to take part in something positive for the community and create a space where anyone could come and have a chat and a cup of tea,’ said Specsavers Bromsgrove store director Mark Gibson. ‘Hosting this ‘Time for a Cuppa’ event gave us that opportunity and it was so lovely to get to know our customers. We want to say thank you to everyone who popped into store and helped us raise £53.’
The Dementia UK ‘Time for a Cuppa’ initiative encourages people from all walks of life to come together over a cuppa and some cake, while also raising money to help dementia specialist nurses to support more people suffering from the disease.
The charity provides specialist dementia support for families through the Admiral Nurse service. Admiral Nurses are trained to support those suffering from dementia and their families with expert advice and much needed emotional support. The charity’s mission is to increase nurse coverage across the UK, raise awareness and understanding of Admiral Nursing and provide robust evidence for the effectiveness of the nursing itself.
