Dementia Gift Boxes Delivered
Due to the last Decaf event being cancelled, staff at Valley Park created care packages and delivered them yesterday to those who had attended previous events.
Miss Collins, who gave a clay workshop at the previous Decaf event just before lockdown in March, helped to deliver the gift boxes.
'One lovely couple were really pleased to receive a gift and to have a good chat at a 2 metre distance!' said Miss Collins. 'They chatted about how amazing our students are and that they really missed being able to attend the dementia café this term. They also said how much they enjoyed the pottery workshop which they related to some brilliant ceramic animal sculptures they'd made a few years ago.'
'Their appreciation and warmth spoke volumes as to how much the contact with our students meant to them' continued Miss Collins, 'and that with Dementia they still remember very fondly the pottery workshop as well as the lunch and tea and opportunities to chat with the younger generation.'
