A care home is making "Time for a Cuppa" this Thursday to raise money for Dementia UK.

Colne View in Colchester Road, Halstead, will be popping the kettle on as part of the charity's annual Time for A Cuppa event from 10.30am.  

A tempting selection of hot drinks and cakes will be on offer in return for a donation and a raffle will also be held. 

Ana Tudorache, Colne View’s home manager, said: “At Care UK, we’re always trying to think of new ways to support charities and the local community.

"Dementia UK is a very worthwhile cause and is one that is very close to the hearts of our residents and their loved ones. Everyone at the home is therefore proud to be supporting ‘Time for a Cuppa’.

"The event is a great way to raise money for the charity, and for team here and all of our residents to join together for a fun day with family and friends.”
