Care home residents raise cash for dementia charity

Residents shared tea and cakes with visitors when they held a fundraising afternoon in their nursing home in support of a dementia charity.

The event, Time for a Cuppa, held at Hawthorn Green Nursing Home in Redman’s Road, Stepney last week, charged each visitor �1.

Cash raised will support Admiral Nurses, specialist staff who offer practical and emotional support to people affected by Alzheimer’s.

The home’s manager Rosalind Mbaki said: “Many of our residents have dementia so this is a charity which is extremely close to our hearts.”
