Workshops at Penryn Memory Café
In February, we organised and delivered a papercraft workshop for members of Penryn Memory Café; a welcoming and safe space for people with dementia. The activity was designed with the needs of our audience in mind – we wanted to keep their hands busy, their minds stimulated and (most importantly!) to make them smile!
We are pleased to report that our workshop was loved by all – even Lewis, who is rarely willing to get involved with activities! The workshop was followed by tea, cake and bingo, making the visit a particularly wholesome experience!
Sharing what we’d been up to on social media prompted a positive reaction from our followers – people were keen to know how they could get involved with this lovely local group. It was great to be able to give them more information and to know that we were inspiring others to join us on our mission!
We were planning to host a second workshop in March, but unfortunately it was cancelled due to coronavirus. We were devastated to miss out on the chance to say a proper goodbye and just hope that everyone is safe!
