Pathfields Lodge will be holding a "Cupcake Day" in support of the Alzheimer's Society on Saturday 16th June 2018 from 11.00am until 15.00pm.
The day features three free interactive information sessions where our visitors can learn all about how dementia affects a person and what you can do to make a difference. With an estimated 850,000 people in the UK living with dementia and 24.6 million – 38% of the UK population – who know a family member or close friend living with dementia, we’re hoping that these sessions will be helpful and informative (Alzheimer’s Research UK),
Our interactive sessions will run hourly from 12.00 until 2.00pm and will be run by a Dementia Friend. Dementia Friends is an Alzheimer’s Society initiative which encourages people to learn a little bit more about what it is like to live with dementia and then turn that understanding into action. It’s all about learning about the small ways in which you can help dementia sufferers. Small actions such as telling friends about Dementia Friends, being more patient in a shop queue to campaigning for change, every action counts. Dementia Friends are all trained and supported by the Alzheimer’s Society
As well as our interactive sessions, we will be raising money for the Alzheimer’s Society through cake-themed games and activities, a raffle and the sale of cupcakes. Our event is free to members of the general public, anybody that is interested in learning more about dementia, anybody that wants to see what Pathfields Lodge is all about or anybody that likes cupcakes!
If you’d like to attend you can contact Michaela Lowe at Pathfields (09133 413 646) or email Nicola, our Dementia Friend direct on NicolaDementiaFriendsChampion@yahoo.com or alternatively just turn up on the day!
