Help the butterfly appeal take flight!

One in five of our older inpatients has some form of dementia diagnosis, ranging from mild confusion to end stage dementia.

We want to raise £31,000 to enhance our services to patients with dementia.

This money will:

  • provide day room facilities on each of our three elderly care wards,
  • pay for an activity coordinator to work with our dementia patients, promoting 'recollection' and enhanced memory recall,
  • buy audio equipment, art materials and other items to help patient's memories.

If you wish to donate to the Dementia Care appeal via the Just Giving page click here.

If you would like to contribute using our donation form click here.

Get involved and support the appeal. Contact Dee or Helen in the Charity Office on 01268 524900 ext 4198, or email
