Serving up a cup of kindness at Gaywood dementia drop-in cafe
Friendship, advice and support is being offered at a new drop-in café at Gaywood for people suffering from dementia, their families and carers.
The free weekly café is open at Gaywood Church Rooms on Gayton Road from 2.30pm until 4pm on Wednesdays and is open to everyone who feels they may benefit from such a facility.
The lead for this new project is Penny Mansfield, pictured above left, and she is keen for the café to become known to a wider public.
She said: “The new drop-in café is intended particularly for people with dementia, their families, friends and carers, although all are welcome.
“It is intended to provide a quiet, safe space where friendship, advice and support are offered along with tea and cake.”
From September it is planned that on the second Wednesday of each month there will be a quiz and sing-along session.
For further information about the drop-in café call Mrs Mansfield on 07796123680 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also contact the Rector of St Faith’s Church, the Rev Julie Boyd, on 01553 770952.
Also pictured above at the launch event last Wednesday are Maureen Hood and Richard Parr.
