Here at J C Country we are holding a charity fashion show on Friday 28th September 2018 in aid of Garstang Memory Cafe.
What is a Memory Cafe?
A memory Café is more than just a ‘social outing’. A memory Café is a gathering of people affected by and/or interested in dementia. Monthly gatherings are for the purpose of education, discussions, exchanging information about dementia, and for opportunities to socialize and meet others.
The memory cafe is for:
- people with dementia, any type of dementia; for as long as a person is comfortable in the Café environment and with the talks and discussions
- family carers, friends, neighbours, and social network
- anyone interested in dementia, professionally or personally. These include: care giving professionals, students who want to learn about dementia, students who want to help as volunteers to fill the public service components of awards like the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
What happens at a Memory Café?
Guests receive support, information, education about dementia, and meet others in similar circumstances. They also meet professionals knowledgeable about dementia, representatives of the local Alzheimer’s Society or other dementia support group, services, and volunteers. People can converse, listen to one of the themed talks or interviews, and enjoy refreshments and music.
DOORS OPEN AT 7PM WITH THE FASHION SHOW COMMENCING AT 7.45PM.
Tickets are £5.00 and include a welcome drink, refreshments and nibbles whilst you enjoy the show.
