12 Jun WWFC & WWSET COME TOGETHER FOR DAY OF FUN!
WWSET and WWFC are coming together on the 15th June for a day of fun, fundraising and fabulous cake-chomping, in aid of rising against dementia and having a giant helping of fun!
All of the staff will be baking, buying and eating cupcakes in the hope of raising money for the great work the Alzheimer’s Society do. Dementia has a huge impact on families everywhere and with your help, we want to change this.
Every last crumb raised on Cupcake Day will go towards finding a cure and changing the lives of people affected by dementia. No matter how small the donation it all comes together to help those in need.
What can your money do?
£2 could pay for a DNA extraction from a brain tissue sample to investigate the role our genes play in the development of Alzheimer’s disease and the therapies that could help.
£21 could pay for a Dementia Advisor to spend an hour with someone who has just received a dementia diagnosis, helping them come to terms with their diagnosis at a crucial time.
£50 could pay for a community tool that uses symbols rather the words to help people with advanced dementia express their opinions and needs. Researchers use this tool to better understand the challenges they face.
£110 could pay for five people with Dementia to attend a Dementia Café for a month, giving them a welcoming space to connect with people who know what they’re going through and how they feel.
£208 could pay for one of our Side by Side services to run for a day. Our volunteer-led programme provides companionship and support to people with dementia by helping them to continue doing the things they love.
So if you want to help WWSET and WWFC raise money for this amazing cause why not take your own cupcake selfie, have your own Cupcake Day at work or simply donate whatever you can spare to Alzheimer’s Society.
