Come and enjoy our Forget-Me-Not cafes across the Sevenoaks District
2023 is proving to be a great year for the Sevenoaks Area Dementia Friendly Community Charity.
We now have an amazing six Forget-Me-Not cafes running across the district. A café in the restored Bat and Ball Station in Sevenoaks supported by the Town Council is proving to be the latest success, adding to our café in Otford now in its second year. These add to the cafes in Knole in Sevenoaks, Westerham, Edenbridge, and Hildenborough. They all offer companionship over a cuppa, peer support, and entertaining activities for people living with memory loss. All cafes are run by our trustees and volunteers.
In addition, our Forget-me-Not'es companionship choir, which our Director, Kieron is a huge fan of and organises for the charity, meets at the Beatrix Wilson Common room in Rockdale Housing Association. This is a special café that is attended by residents of Rockdale and our patrons from across the community, led by our Choir Master Phil Raymond.
This year we have also run pop-up cafes at Sevenoaks Hospital for patients. These have been welcomed by patients and hugely supported by the nurses, care assistants, and support staff at the hospital. Our most recent one was on the 5th of July to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the NHS.
Our main fundraising event is our annual Run Walk or Push Against Dementia held at Knole Park. The event welcomes people of all ages who run, walk, or push a pram at their own pace on the 3k and 5k courses or run the 10k course. We also receive donations from local businesses and community groups. This ensures that all cafes are free to attend.
If you would like to know the details of the cafes click here to go to the charity website. All cafés are free. No booking is required, just turn up on the day.
