How will your money help?
£30 will pay for a day trip for one person. Memory loss can create a huge sense of isolation for both the patient and their carers. Butterflies Memory Loss Support Group provides stimulating and fun social activities that can provide a renewed sense of belonging and offer a degree of normality.
£12 will provide a memory book. Our dedicated volunteers work with our members and their families to create a memory book that can be cherished by the whole family for years to come. Each book carries its own individualities that can stimulate memories and capture time spent together. The books are developed by each family and the journey of completing each page is filed with laughter and smiles.
£5 will pay for simple activity session with a volunteer.
