Housing association Colne Housing has given Sudbury The Bridge Project a grant of £4,600 towards its work supporting people with dementia.

The weekly ‘Decaf’ sessions run every Monday from 11am to 3pm, and provide people suffering from dementia, and their carers, a chance to meet and socialise with others in their position.

Money from the grant was used to provide training for volunteers plus providing puzzles and games used to help keep minds active.

The drop-in group will be based at the Gainsborough Street centre and is free of charge to attend.

Bridge Project service manager Becky Nicholson said: “We rely on grants to help us provide invaluable services, so we’re extremely grateful to Colne Housing.

“The café makes such a difference to people with dementia and their families as it gives them a friendly space where they can socialise and meet others in the same situation.”
