Residents at Larkhill Hall care home in West Derby made ‘Time for a Cuppa’ on 1st March by hosting an event to raise money for Dementia UK.
Larkhill Hall, 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 Larkhill Hall 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 runs 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, Larkhill Hall also put together several hampers which were raffled off and the event raised a grand total of £143 for the charity. One of the visitors to the home commented that they “really enjoyed the afternoon and for a good cause. Mum had a good time and the staff were fantastic”.
Regional Director, Paul Fletcher, said: “Residents at Larkhill Hall were really excited about this event and had a great time. There is always something going on at the home 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 their beautiful home.”
Larkhill Hall 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.
