There will be plenty of tea and cake at a fundraising event later this year.

Happy Memories was started two years ago as a charity to raise money to provide social events for people with dementia and their carers.

Founded by Sue Carter and Diane Cobb, the charity paid for a trip to a show at the King’s Lynn Corn Exchange.

Both founders will be attending a range of car boot sales to boost funds. They have also organised a sponsored walk at Sandringham on Sunday, June 28.

Tea in the Garden will be served at Mrs Carter’s West Winch home on Friday, August 14.

“We serve tea and cakes in pretty cups and teapots and sell plants and preserves. A good time is had by all,” said Mrs Carter.

There is also a lunch club held twice a month in West Norfolk and new members are always welcome to attend.

“The club was originally  started by the Alzheimer’s Society around 13 years ago, but we have taken over the running of it ourselves.

“We were both members of that lunch club because we had family members with dementia,” said Mrs Carter.

There is also a lunch club run by carers at the George Hotel, Swaffham, on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month.

The Alzheimer’s Society, runs dementia cafes at King’s Lynn Methodist Church Rooms on the first Friday of the month; the Assembly Rooms, Swaffham on the first Wednesday; Downham Market Town Hall the second Monday and Hunstanton Community Centre the third Monday of the month and new people are welcome.
