Coffee and Cakes with the Mayor raises over £100 for charity

Dover Mayor Councillor Sue Jones joined forces with local charity Dover smART to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society and the Dover Outreach Centre.  Sue welcomed guests to cakes and coffee during the regular Tuesday “The Art of Age” meeting on 19th February.  The Group is especially for the elderly including those living with dementia and their carers and meets every week to enjoy making art and having fun together.

Sue said –

I am so grateful to the smART Gallery for hosting the coffee morning as part of their weekly meeting. It was a very enjoyable event and raised a fabulous sum for the Mayor’s Charities.

Dover smART was founded in 2013 and supports local people through art and creative projects, building aspirations and nurturing well-being. They currently work with;young carers and their families, school groups, people living with dementia, hospice patients and their families, people without a home and people who are coping with mental health issues and social isolation.
