A CARE home is looking to raise funds for Dementia UK's 10 year anniversary of its charity tea initiative.

Larkland House care home in Ascot, London Road, will be opening their doors to the public for a charity bake sale 'Time for a Cuppa'.

Time for a Cuppa, a nationwide campaign running from March 1 to the 8, aims to raise money to support Admiral Nurses who provide specialist dementia support for families.

Residents and visitors will get to enjoy a hot drink, alongside a selection of cakes and treats in exchange of a small donation to Dementia UK.

Maggie Candy, manager at Larkland House, said: "Thousands of people around the UK are living with dementia and we understand all too well how much this can affect their lives and the lives of their loved ones.

"Providing care is at the heart of that we do here at Larkland House, and we strongly believe that everyone deserves to have access to all the help and support they need."

Dementia UK is celebrating a decade of 'Time for a Cuppa', previously a campaign known as 'A Tea Party to Remember'.

The scheme aims to encourage individuals and organisations across the country to host tea parties in order to raise money.

Maggie added: "Hosting a Time for a Cuppa event provides us with a great opportunity to thank Dementia UK and the Admiral Nurses for the incredible work that they do, so we hope local people will join us on the day to share a cuppa with friends."

Larkland House in Ascot, provide nursing and dementia care to full-time residents in Berkshire and short-term respite care.
