Royal Arch grant  helps Devon dementia sufferers

Tuesday, 11 September 2018

A £10,000 grant from the Provincial Grand Chapter of Devonshire has benefited 53 Memory Cafes in the county

Memory Cafes offer practical and emotional support, information, guidance and friendship to people living with dementia and their carers.

Rachel Johnstone, trustee of Devon Memory Cafe Consortium, said: ‘This grant has given hundreds of people moments to remember.’

Grand Superintendent Simon Rowe added: ‘Memory Cafes, which are largely run by volunteers, make a personal difference to the lives of people affected by dementia – and this is a cause very close to the hearts of Freemasons.’
