A St Neots café, that helps people that are suffering with dementia has been donated £1,000.
Coffee Pot Memory Café was awarded with the money after being the winners of the Grand a month Giveaway, hosted by the St Neots Roundtable.
Every month The St Neots Roundtable nominate new charities in the area and donate money to them to help them grow and enhance their public profile.
The coffee pot memory café provides a meeting place for those suffering from memory loss and for their carers.
Toby Serjeant, community charity officer, St Neots Round Table said:
“We chose this particular charity because they provide invaluable support to over 50 dementia sufferers and their carers (so over 100 in total), all of who live in or around St Neots. They put on weekly events for dementia sufferers and additionally provide river trips, hog roast, strawberry tea and Xmas lunch outings.
“It’s really important as it services a lot of people and with an ageing population and a longer life expectancy people suffering from memory loss will just increase.”
