A SUCCESSFUL fundraising tea party was held at Filey’s Evron Centre to mark Dementia Awareness Week.
The event was organised by Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale Alzheimer’s Society and raised £129.50.
Guests included Filey’s mayor and mayoress Richard and Jacqui Walker and town crier David Bull.
Mary Fawcett, dementia support manager, said: “It was a really good event and a great success.
“We were really pleased with the amount raised and everybody seemed to enjoy themselves.
“The mayor was very helpful and enthusiastic.”
Mrs Fawcett added that the group was also delighted to receive a cheque from the Ladies’ Masons for £400.
Two stallholders were dressed in Pearly Queen outfits and people were invited to guess how many buttons were on the outfits to win a prize.
The charity holds a “Memory Cafe” at the Evron Centre on the last Tuesday of every month - next on is July 26, 2pm to 4pm.
Family members and friends of people with dementia are welcome.
