Cuppa for a Cure – Dementia Friendly Allotment

Join BRACE for a Cuppa for a Cure event at the Alive Dementia-friendly Allotments, this Dementia Action Week, and help raise money for vital dementia research. There will be refreshments and cakes for you to enjoy on the day, as well as a plant sale. There will also be the chance for a tour of the allotment and gardening activities. We hope to see you there!

Organised and supported by Alive:

“Alive has been running gardening sessions for older people and people with dementia for over ten years and has seen first-hand the positive impact gardening can have on a person’s mental and physical health.

While at the allotment, participants can do activities set out by one of our horticultural therapy experts or enjoy good company and being outside surrounded by nature and birdsong. Trained volunteers will be on hand to assist if required and to help create a welcoming atmosphere.

The allotments are fully accessible. There is a shelter for when the elements are against us, and loos onsite. At the end of every session, there will be a chance to reflect on what we’ve achieved, make plans for future projects and, most importantly, drink tea!”
