Boost for Memory Cafe Brighouse

Cornerstone Memory Café in Brighouse has received a welcome cash boost from staff at local solicitors Wilkinson Woodward Bearders who raised £200 as they handed out festive treats to children during Brighouse’s recent Christmas Market.

The café, which is staffed by volunteers from both Cornerstone Church and others keen to support the work, provides a lifeline for people with dementia and their carers.

Collecting the cheque from Wilkinson Woodward Bearders, café organiser, Kath Mashinter, said: “Cornerstone Memory Cafe provides a vital service to local people living with dementia who can often feel isolated. The café offers friendship, support and a variety of activities. The money raised by Wilkinson Woodward Bearders has given our group a significant boost and will help us to support many local people in 2019.”

Cornerstone Memory Café runs on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month from 2pm until 4pm at Brighouse Civic Hall.
