Time for a Cuppa

This May, have cake and a cuppa with friends and family to fundraise for Dementia UK, and help even more families receive the life-changing emotional and practical support of dementia specialist Admiral Nurses. 

Now more than ever, we need your help. The Covid-19 pandemic has hit families facing dementia so hard. Admiral Nurses have been supporting families through some of the most challenging days they’ve seen – with support groups and centres closed, often looking after a person with dementia on their own, 24 hours a day. 

Things might look a bit different this year – but making Time for a Cuppa has never been so important. Whether it’s tea at the table, from a few metres away or a promise to meet up in the future, let the people you care about know you want to have a cuppa with them – all the while raising funds for life-changing Admiral Nurses to help families face dementia. 

What do I need to do? 

  1. Register for your free fundraising pack which will contain everything you need to get started 
  2. Set a date and spread the word – Time for a Cuppa week is 1st-8th May, but you can hold your event on any day, or month, that suits you 
  3. Bake (or buy!) some cakes 
  4. Have a lovely time with friends, family or colleagues raising money for families facing dementia   
  5. Send in your donations and feel proud of what you’ve achieved 

Hosting my Time for a Cuppa was a great experience – meeting new people, having fun and eating cake whilst raising money for a cause close to my heart.
