|Tea Party Helps Ealing Dementia Charity|
Hundreds of pounds raised from cake and raffle
A local care company hosted a special tea party last week and raised hundreds of pounds for a dementia charity.
Care Concern (Homecare) Ltd wanted to help raise awareness of the illness and provide extra funds for the Ealing based 'Dementia Concern'.
About 50 people attended the party at Balcon Court, Boileau Road, W5 and £550 was raised from the raffle.
Manager, Catherine Gunnewicht, who helped organise the event said:
'' We are a small domiciliary care provider and many of our clients have dementia and use this vital service so we wanted to give them some support and thank them for the invaluable help and support they give to people with dementia and their families.
''We also think it is important to raise awareness of dementia as it is an illness which is on the increase. It is important that dementia is kept high on the agenda and it is good to read that Jeremy Hunt has pledged more funding for speedier diagnosis.
''We all had a lot of fun and ate lots of cake! It was a great opportunity for a get-together and a nice social event.''
Care concern (homecare) Ltd would like to thank local Ealing businesses who donated raffles prizes:
Maxim’s Chinese Restaurant, Hotel Xanadu, Bill’s, Cracked Pot flower boutique, ContactUsEaling, Kaboodles and Waitrose.
