The Memory Box Café for people living with dementia based in West Wickham now plans to run twice a month thanks to extra funds from the Co-op Local Community Fund.

Bromley Mayor Councillor Kathy Bance, who visited Memory Box Dementia Café in November 2017, presented a cheque from the Co-op for £2,300.66 to Ravenswood (West Wickham) Women’s Institute (WI) outside the Co-op Food Store at Coney Hall on Saturday 25th November 2017.

Ravenswood (West Wickham) WI runs Memory Box Café at the Emmanuel Church in The Grove, West Wickham. This money raised by Co-op Coney Hall, along with other fundraising, will allow the Cafe to run twice a month from February, on the first and third Friday of each month.

The Memory Box Café is run by volunteers and, for the past 18 months, has provided free entertainment, information, fun and refreshments for people living with dementia and their carers.

The project is part of Ravenswood (West Wickham) WI’s work to make West Wickham a dementia friendly community.
