Cuppa, Cake and Company for Seniors in Yorkshire
The Cuppa, Cake and Company group raised their cups to The Bring Joy Foundation after receiving a grant for £3,420 towards their monthly tea parties. The Trustees are all too aware of the positive impact that a cup of tea and tasty cuppa cake contributes towards seniors enjoying themselves and the joy of getting out of the house and to socialise with like minded people.
The launch was attended by Bren Torry from Home Instead Senior Care, Reverend Alistair from St Marys Parish Church Councillor Dale Smith, Liz O’Keefe from Age Uk as well as Rehfan Khan from Bradford Council. There were a number of residents and their carers and staff from Burley Hall Residential Home present as well as many older local people. Approximately 50 people were present and both downstairs rooms were full. Guests were entertained by a singer whilst they all enjoyed tasty treats and a cup of tea. Local residents said they really enjoyed the afternoon and the group received some really positive feedback from the group.
Organisers Becky Berry and Andrea Pickersgill made short speeches thanking the “Bring Joy” foundation and Home instead Senior Care for their support and funding.
