Tea party for those with dementia

Donmentia event - June 17Doncaster folk with dementia and their carers have been treated to afternoon tea – thanks to a big hearted volunteer who runs a local charity.

Eileen Harrington, founder of the local charity DonMentia and a Governor at Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH), ensured her garden was ship shape and she baked up a treat, to ensure those with dementia and their carers could sit back and enjoy the summer.

The DonMentia event saw Eileen, a keen gardener, heading into her kitchen to bake the mouth-watering treats, supported by friends, to ensure those with dementia could have an afternoon out.

Eileen said: “It was a lovely afternoon, the weather was fine and people with dementia and their carers could sit back, relax and enjoy the summer.”

Wayne Goddard, the Doncaster Dementia Commissioning Lead for the Clinical Commissioning Group and Doncaster Council, said: “Eileen always puts on a great afternoon tea in her fantastic garden. She worked so hard to make this event a success and I want to thank her on behalf of all the partners and associates who are working together to make Doncaster a better place for those living with dementia and their families.”
