Residents at Ash Tree House care home in Wigan made ‘Time for a Cuppa’ on 7th March by hosting an event to raise money for Dementia UK.
Ash Tree House, operated by Ideal Carehomes, opened its doors to the local community providing hot drinks, home-made cakes and a good old natter, all for a very worthy cause.
Dementia UK offers specialist one-to-one support and expert advice for people living with dementia. Sarah Austin, Community Fundraising Manager at Dementia UK, said “We want to thank Ash Tree House for their support and for raising funds for Dementia UK by making ‘Time for a Cuppa’ – we hope that the residents and staff enjoyed themselves!”
The ‘Time for a Cuppa’ week ran from 1st to 8th March and is a UK wide event to raise money for families facing dementia. With the help of their Regional Activity Executive, Natalie Ravenscroft, Ash Tree House also put together several hampers which were raffled off and the event raised a grand total of £125 for the charity. One of the visitors to the home commented that “this has been a lovely event, a very enjoyable afternoon and for a very good cause”.
Home Manager, Kathryn Disley, said: “We were all really excited about this event and had a great time. There is always something going on at Ash Tree House but you can’t beat a cuppa and a natter, especially when it is for such a good cause. Our residents always enjoy meeting new people and are delighted to invite guests to enjoy our beautiful home.”
Ash Tree House is a high quality residential and dementia care home which provides a great place to live, making a real difference to the lives of the people who live there.
