Trust staff invited for a cuppa to support dementia charity


Staff from the South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, which provides mental health and learning disability services to the people of Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield, are holding a fundraising event in Calderdale on Tuesday 2nd February in support of for dementia’s Time for a Cuppa Day campaign.

For dementia is committed to improving the quality of life for all people affected by dementia through the provision of Admiral Nurses, providing high quality, affordable training to care staff professionals and providing support though a network of carers, Uniting Carers for dementia.

Staff at Dean Clough Mills in Calderdale will be baking cakes and buns for sale in their dining room between 12 and 1pm. There will also be a raffle in support of the national campaign.

Sabrina Kellett, who helped organise the event, said, "We choose to support the charity’s campaign as for dementia supports the work that we do as mental health nurses when working with people who have dementia."

All the money raised will go to for dementia and help pay for the helpline to provide dedicated support for dementia carers and will be making a real difference to people with dementia and their families.

Former GMTV presenter Fiona Phillips, who is the patron of for dementia, said, "I know only too well how dementia can affect family carers through feelings of loneliness and confusion and just how valuable support offered by for dementia is to them. That is why I am an active supporter of Time for a Cuppa and hope you will be too."

If you, or someone you know, is caring for someone with dementia and would like to talk to an Admiral Nurse please call Admiral Nursing DIRECT on 0845 257 9406 or email
