Dementia Support’s Meet And Eat

Get together with friends, share some food and raise money for Dementia Support

Meet and Eat is all about getting friends, family, neighbours or colleagues to dine together and raise funds for Dementia Support. From dinner parties to picnics – coffee to cocktails. You choose how you want your Meet and Eat event to be.

Social Distancing meet and eat

Decide what kind of event you want to host. From dinner parties to picnics, cocktails to coffee – choose your socially distanced time, location and offering, then simply invite your guests for the best socially distanced meal they have ever had.

If you’re hosting a socially distanced event, ensure you follow up-to-date Government guidance on social distancing for the safety of you and your guests

Virtual meet and eat

If you choose to take your meet and eat online all you need is an internet connection and you can join
from anywhere to use Zoom, Houseparty, WhatsApp etc.

Hold a virtual coffee morning, afternoon tea, Sunday lunch, dinner party, or cheese and wine evening with friends, family, colleagues or with a group you’re a member of.

Then set up your fundraising page here and send the link out with your invitations!

Please call Natalie Burchett, Community and Events Fundraiser on 01243 958 460 or email for more information.

Text a donation

You can also ask your guests to donate to your event by text.

We’ve set up a special text code so we can see how much our Meet and Eat fundraisers are giving. It’s so simple. To donate £10 just ask your guests to text EAT to 70085. This costs £10 plus a std rate message.

If they’d like to choose another amount, then they simply text EAT followed by the amount they wish to donate (up to a maximum of £20) to 70085

Can’t host an event – then make a donation

Fundraising isn’t the only option. Why not donate the amount you think you could have raised through an event instead?
