Throughout the first week of March, The Kaleidoscope Plus Group’s Sandwell Community Offer which helps people 65 and over, teamed up with Dementia UK to help raise funds for families facing dementia by hosting various ‘Time For a Cuppa’ tea and cake sales.

Across a scope of community centres throughout West Bromwich, the Sandwell Community Offer managed to raise a total of £410.35!

Community Offer Assistant, Natalie Harris spear-headed all the ‘Time for a Cuppa’ events and was thankful to everybody who contributed.

She said: “I’m so very grateful to everybody who donated as all the money raised will be going to a worthwhile cause.

“Dementia can be a crippling and debilitating for anyone experiencing it and their families too so being able help is a great thing.

“Having raised over £400 Is fantastic as every penny counts!”
