Grab some good food, good drink, and good company because we need you to Meet and Eat in aid of Dementia Support!
After over a year of restrictions, social distancing, and virtual hang outs, we are once again able to get together and reconnect with those we have missed. Through taking part in Meet and Eat, you can make the most of this lessening of Covid restrictions and support those living with dementia and their loved ones at the same time.
You can host your meet and eat with family and friends, your community group, sports club, or maybe even to celebrate returning to the office with your colleagues. In the past they have seen Zumba classes enjoy a wine and cheese evening, picnics with extended family and canapes with a raffle.
If you are not the baking or cooking type, you could visit us at Daisy’s Café at Sage House, our hub in Tangmere, for homemade cake or a tasty lunch in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
The money raised will help Dementia Support to support those living with dementia as well as their loved ones and carers throughout their whole dementia journey. They offer free advice and support through their Wayfinding service, respite care, activity sessions and health and wellbeing services such as hairdressing and assisted bathing to help people to live well with dementia.
Natalie Burchett, the Community Fundraising and Events Manager, explained: “The last 1½ years have been extremely difficult for everyone but also very hard for charities, so we are asking you to celebrate getting back together, making new memories, and inviting your guests to Meet & Eat with you this summer whilst raising vital funds for Dementia Support. You could get together for a BBQ, a fancy dinner party, cocktails & canapes or good old tea and cake! Why not involve the children and add hook a duck, sponge throw (at the adults of course!) or face painting for even more fun.”
