As we specialise in dementia care here at Ryefield Court, this year, we decided to take part in World Alzheimer’s Awareness Day last Friday, holding both a raffle and cake sale. All money raised on the day has gone towards helping to increase awareness of those living with the illness and the obstacles they face daily.

On the day, we had lavender bags and earrings available for purchase, which were made by some of our talented residents. The raffle was a huge success, with prizes generously donated from the local community, including lovely gifts such as bottles of wine, fruit baskets and a session with a personal trainer. The cake sale went well too, with some very tasty treats available all day.

This World Alzheimer’s Day – and every day, in fact – we want to make sure that everyone living with dementia knows that we are here for them. Our event was very successful, and we raised quite a bit of money for the charity – if you would like to get involved in any of our future fundraising events, please get in touch.
