Dementia Support’s Meet and Eat Campaign Press Release

Grab some good food, good drink, and good company because we need you to Meet and
Eat in aid of Dementia Support!

After over a year of restrictions, social distancing, and virtual hang outs, we are once again
able to get together and reconnect with those we have missed. Through taking part in Meet
and Eat, you can make the most of this lessening of Covid restrictions and support those
living with dementia and their loved ones at the same time.

You can host your meet and eat with family and friends, your community group, sports club,
or maybe even to celebrate returning to the office with your colleagues. In the past they have
seen Zumba classes enjoy a wine and cheese evening, picnics with extended family and
canapes with a raffle.

If you are not the baking or cooking type, you could visit us at Daisy’s Café at Sage House,
our hub in Tangmere, for homemade cake or a tasty lunch in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.

The money raised will help Dementia Support to support those living with dementia as well
as their loved ones and carers throughout their whole dementia journey. They offer free
advice and support through their Wayfinding service, respite care, activity sessions and
health and wellbeing services such as hairdressing and assisted bathing to help people to
live well with dementia.

Natalie Burchett, the Community Fundraising and Events Manager, explained: “The last 1½
years have been extremely difficult for everyone but also very hard for charities, so we are
asking you to celebrate getting back together, making new memories, and inviting your
guests to Meet & Eat with you this summer whilst raising vital funds for Dementia Support.
You could get together for a BBQ, a fancy dinner party, cocktails & canapes or good old tea
and cake! Why not involve the children and add hook a duck, sponge throw (at the adults of
course!) or face painting for even more fun.”
