£200 raised at Hovertravel for Dementia UK’s Time for a Cuppa

Hovertravel welcomed visitors to their Time for a Cuppa Pop-up Café at their Ryde Terminal to raise awareness and funds as part of the tenth anniversary of this worthy initiative.

They raised a fantastic £200 for more families across the Isle of Wight to access the unique and specialist help of an Admiral Nurse.Loretta Lale, Head of Commercial at Hovertravel, says: “We must thank Tesco Extra, French Franks and Grace's Bakery who donated very popular cakes and to 1st Brading Scouts for helping make this event possible.

We also say huge congratulations to Dementia UK for reaching its 10th year of Time for a Cuppa. To be able to bake until we dropped for such a fantastic cause was amazing and we hope that the money raised will help more families access the lifeline that Admiral Nurses bring.”Admiral Nurses provide the specialist dementia support that families need. When things get challenging or difficult, they work alongside families affected by dementia, giving them one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions, helping families face dementia with more confidence and less fear.

Dementia UK is on target to have 300 Admiral Nurses by 2020 working out in the community as well as in care homes, hospitals, hospices and on the Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline.
