Making a difference

Thank you, St Hugh’s!

This is the message from Friendship At Home as 2021 draws to a close.

We are a proud long-term supporter of the organisation that aims to tackle loneliness and isolation among older people in North East Lincolnshire.

Part of the charity’s work encompasses the St Hugh’s Project, which funds two dementia specialists – Mandy Sparkes and Clare Mills, social clubs and more.

We also provide rides on specially adapted triobikes throughout the year to get members out and about.

Dementia Community Support Worker Mandy said: “We are very grateful to St Hugh’s for all their continued support to Friendship At Home throughout the year, especially for funding the St Hugh’s Project.

“The social clubs are just a small part of what we do that brings so many smiles and purpose to our members but it’s the one-to-one support sessions are what we have been told is a major lifeline for our members with dementia and their family/carers.

“Clare and I are very proud of the work we do; since the project started in April 2017, we have supported 407 people with dementia – and for that we will be forever thankful.”
