Green Token Giving funding for Headway Suffolk Dementia Support groups in Ipswich 

March 02, 2022

It was such a pleasure to spend time with Maureen who runs the Dementia Support Groups, the volunteers and the service users themselves to find out how these groups have become such an important part of our community

The group who are supported by Headway Suffolk were nominated last year for Our Green Token Giving scheme 

They were runners up in our customer vote and received £200 funding from The Asda Foundation to help with the cost of running the groups 

Unfortunately Dementia will affect many of us at some point in our lives whether it is directly or indirectly, through family members or people we know

Community dementia groups such as these give welcome support to the carers and the cared for

After playing some bingo, a little go at curling and taking part in a quiz,  we then sat down together for a fish and chips lunch 

After lunch we were treated to some memorable songs and music from Mark who volunteers regularly to entertain the groups, then the singing and dancing began

An enjoyable afternoon was had by all

You can nominate a community group or charity for Our Green Token Giving scheme by visting the The Asda foundation website or contacting your Community Champion at your local Asda store
