Afternoon tea for Alzheimer’s raises over £200

Phillip Batchelor, owner of Home Instead in Cardiff held an Afternoon tea in aid of the Alzheimer’s society on Friday, raising over £200 for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Around 70 people attended the charity tea party including local MP Jonathan Evans and many guests made a voluntary donation to the cause.

The event invited the at-home care company’s clients, family and friends as well as members of the public to enjoy free tea, coffee and delicious cakes.  Expert advice was also on hand from 11 relevant exhibitors including: Age Concern, The Stroke Association, South Wales Police and of course, The Alzheimer’s Society.

Phil Batchelor commented: “The event was a great success and it was wonderful to get the support of so many kind members of the local community. The tea and cakes seemed to go down well and several attendees also commented that they learnt a lot from the organisations that were exhibiting.”
