ABN AMRO Finance have kindly donated £3800 to support the Know Dementia St Richards Memory Moments Café in Haywards Heath. The cheque was presented by representatives of ABN AMRO at the Café session on Tuesday 20th November to the Know Dementia Charity and St Richards Church. Know Dementia and St Richards Church work in partnership to provide the Café sessions which are held twice a month. The next two Cafés are on 18th December and 5th January and welcomes people with memory problems and their carers/family supporters. The Café provides a friendly meeting place with games, activities and entertainment which are enjoyed along with tea/coffee and cake.
Fr Chris Brading of St Richards Church commented:
‘it was great to welcome ABN AMRO Finance to St Richards Memory Moments Café and for them to experience one of the ways in which their generous donation will be put to good use in support of the fantastic and important work of the Know Dementia charity’
We are really looking forward to our Christmas Cafes this year. This Saturday 8th Dec we have our Henfield Christmas Cafe Event at the Catholic Church Hall. The Victory V’s will be entertaining us whilst we enjoy an afternoon tea. Lots of fun and laughter will be had.
The lovely Wadhurst Brownies have been fundraising and raised a fabulous £186.88 and voted Know Dementia as one of their chosen charities to receive the donation. A big thank you to Wadhurst Brownies, you’re amazing.
The magnificent Marcus Martin raised an amazing £445 at his Morning Melodies concert at the Emmanuel United Reformed Church in Worthing and has donated this to Know Dementia. Thank you Marcus and to all those people who supported this very entertaining concert.
Yesterday our 12th Memory Moments Café was opened by the Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex at the Bevy in the city of Brighton and Hove. It’s our first Café in the city and we hope it will lead to more opening there in the near future. The venue for this Café, the Bevy, is special in that it was the first community owned estate pub in the UK so we are excited to be using this fabulous venue for our Café. The mayor of Brighton, along with many other supporters of the café, joined us for a very successful opening.
