During Dementia Awareness Week, on Friday 20th May, a Coffee, Cake and Chat morning was held at Brecon Guildhall. A broad range of organisations were on-hand – Age Cymru, Alzheimer’s Society, Brecon MIND, Powys Carers Service, Crossroads, Mid and West Wales Fire Service, Care and Repair, Brecon Library and Brecknock Museum and Art Gallery – to give advice and information. Particularly welcome were the children from Llanfaes and Mount Street Primary schools who put up displays showing their commitment to becoming dementia-friendly.
Co-ordinated by Brecon Area Dementia Friendly Community, the event was well attended with a lot of positive feedback. In addition we made £162 from coffee and cake sales and the lovely hand-sewn items made by Eileen Price.
A big thank you to everyone who contributed to make the event such a success. All working together to make a difference!
