Kingsteignton’s Memory Cafe; Coronation Fun!

The recent Coronation saw the United Kingdom celebrating in style.

Parties were held across the country, with Kingsteignton’s Memory Cafe not missing out on the fun holding their party at the United Reformed Church Hall.

Our members’ hosted a party complete with an all-British buffet and a Union Jack cake which was finished off with cups of tea.

The party also hosted a celebratory sing-along, accompanied by children from the choir at St. Michael’s School, Kingsteignton.

Jackie (our Dementia Carer Support Worker, one of the key organisers of our Memory Cafes) believes the party was a huge success, but stresses the role of the volunteer is vital within KingsCare to help keep services such as these running.

We need people from all backgrounds and experience to help with anything from simply chatting to the members, to helping with transportation to and from the cafes.

Jackie and David run two Memory Cafes; Newton Abbot Memory Cafe (KingsCare’s initial Memory Cafe), and the Kingsteignton Memory Cafe.

The cafes are aimed at those living with memory loss, and are designed to offer a quiet, friendly place to meet to help them remember, whilst also giving their carers’ a well deserved break.
