Mental health trust makes Time for a Cuppa to help people with dementia and their carers
08/03/2018
​Staff, service users and their families made sure they had Time for a Cuppa for charity at a dementia unit run by Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (NSFT).

A steady flow of visitors enjoyed tea and cake and a good ol’ natter when they dropped in at the event in aid of Dementia UK at the Julian Hospital in Norwich yesterday (Wednesday, 7 March).

Cathy Arbuthnot-Jones, Community Mental Health Nurse ​(pictured, left, with Jo Farnworth, Admiral Nurse​), who organised the event in the Day Treatment Unit (North Older Person’s Community Team), said: “It went very well. There was a steady stream of people, including family and friends of staff and people coming in for appointments at the Memory Clinic.

“I'm very pleased and grateful for all the cakes and the generous donations.”

The event has so far raised £200, with more to come in, for Dementia UK to help families face dementia through its specialist Admiral Nurses.

Cathy said the event was not just about raising money, but also giving carers the opportunity to find out more about the support available to them through the Admiral Nurses, a couple of whom attended the event to answer questions.

Nursing and administrative staff made cakes, and a Victoria sponge was donated by Hemsby tea shop, Kiah Homebakes.
