As we prepare to reopen our Day Centre we are coming to some local events to play and talk about the work we are doing to support those living with memory loss and early dementia- we would like to thank everyone who donated to our tombola prizes especially Maples Flowers, Pope's Yard Brewery and Inspired.

We are launching The Heather Club at Home!

We have launched our outreach programme with doorstep visits to our members delivering Advent Calendars and having a chat! Thank you to our funders The National Lottery and The Shanly Foundation for making it easier to spread a little cheer and stay connected.

The club received some lovely comments from members following the delivery of 22 Advent Calendars. 

'Thank you so much' was the general response at the front doors
One member B'' got her partner to phone to say thank you, she is so grateful and excited at receiving the calendar

The daughter of a member 'A' said she loves the calendar and "I think mum has a chocolate for breakfast"

'J' another said "What a nice thought"

Another 'J' said "Ohh that is so nice"
