Hunslet Moor group raise funds for Dementia UK

Friends of Hunslet Moor had a successful day last Saturday (3 June 2023) at their ‘Time for a Cuppa’ Dementia UK fundraising event. They raised £216 at their community hub selling cakes and sweet treats to the community. On Tuesday they raised a further £66 at St Peter’s Court residents meeting, as well as £80 online making it a very successful event.

Brenda Barlow and Samantha Gilmore who arranged the fundraiser spent the day serving homemade cakes and drinks to the community. Delicious assorted cakes of every category.

The cakes were handmade by Friends of Hunslet Moor and some donated by local residents.

Brenda said:

“I would like to say a huge a thank you to everyone who came and donated to this event including donating cakes. This cruel illness affects so many families. Every penny raised helps specialist Admiral Nurses support more families. These nurses provide life changing care for families affected by all forms of dementia including Alzheimers disease. Every penny counts and we are so happy to have contributed a little to such a deserving cause.

“We look forward to doing another again during the summer.”
