We held a Macmillan coffee event on Saturday, 30 September 10am – 3pm, in our offices in Epping.
Three members of the office team arranged and ran the event. Michele came up with the idea and arranged posters etc. Debbie set up two dementia friends session’s one for 11.30am one for 1.30pm people could just come along and join a session. Tia was the third helper she helped throughout the day and turned her hand to anything required.
A real family affair Michele and Debbie both invited their mothers along to help! Debbie’s mother did lots of washing up! Here they are with the 'Bring and Buy' table setting up.
I also had Annabel there to help at almost two years old she was a favourite! She came straight from baby ballet so she spent the morning in her ballet clothes.
We made 11 Dementia Friends and raised £256.63 in total! I am sure you will agree a very successful day.
