Magic Moments! We’ve been awarded £500 from Magic Little Grants.

In partnership with Postcode Community Trust, Magic Little Grant from Localgiving has awarded us £500 to support our Monday afternoon Chairobics activity, securing it for a further year.

The session has gone from strength to strength since we instigated it two years ago, with over 25 people taking part regularly. It runs from 1.30-2.30pm on a Monday afternoon, although many participants stay after our coffee morning, or arrive early to have a chat and a cuppa. And often, there’s more chat afterwards! It’s hitting all the right notes with regard to gentle physical exercise for those less mobile, and offering a chance for people to meet and make friends. Drop by anytime!

The Postcode Community Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Localgiving is the UK’s leading membership and support network for local charities and community groups.

Dementia Friends Session at the Hub

We’re delighted to be welcoming John Portman of the Alzheimer’s Association to the hub on Thursday, June 14 for a Dementia Friends session.

This is not a training session for carers but an awareness raising chat for those (shopkeepers, other shoppers, for example) who may come into contact with someone living with one of the conditions, and how to spot the signs and allow for them (i.e. not being impatient in a queue, for example).

Perception can be an issue for people with dementia, so this informal chat highlights a few areas where patience and understanding is all that’s required by others to support those living with the condition when out and about.

The session will start at 3.15pm and run for around 45 minutes. All are welcome, but we would be grateful if you could advise your attendance to Jaye at community@waldersladehub.org so we can set up in advance.

The session will take place in the final hour of our Cupcake Day for Alzheimer’s.
