Tea party to show support for 'Make Ipswich Dementia Friendly' campaign a resounding success
Former Blues boss, George Burley, alongside a handful of his fellow ex-Town players, were on hand to show their support as the Club took its first steps towards making Ipswich dementia friendly.
Allan Hunter, Bryan Hamilton, John Peddelty and Simon Milton also made an appearance as we held an afternoon tea party at Portman Road for older fans who may be experiencing dementia or isolation.
Working alongside the East of England Co-op and the Ipswich Dementia Action Alliance (IDAA), the Club invited supporters from local support groups and care homes to talk about their memories of Ipswich Town with the former players.
The afternoon was a resounding success and a lot of fun was had by supporters and players alike.
Last week, the East of England Co-op continued their ‘Make Ipswich Dementia Friendly’ campaign, by encouraging local people and businesses to pledge their support to take steps towards a better understanding of dementia.
Dementia is a disease that will affect most of us, whether directly or indirectly and it’s up to us to take the time to understand how we can help others live well with dementia.
