“Be present in all things and thankful for all things”
This quote by Maya Angelou, is very much at the heart of all that we do at the Café. We sit alongside people to enjoy the moment and be thankful.
This month I would like to voice my appreciation to all the wonderful volunteers who spend time with our friends and families who are living each day with dementia. Every week they turn up with a smile on their faces and love in their hearts, ready to give of their time and of themselves. Drivers, tea makers, welcomers, crafters, listeners, encouragers, laughter makers, advisers, leaders-you know who you are and it is because of your willingness to serve God in this way that the Friendship Café is so successful . So a BIG THANK YOU to you all.
The Friendship Café will continue every Friday throughout the summer months with lots of exciting things happening-Wimbledon, jewellery making, exercise and music, and crafts.
