We are extremely grateful to the many generous local organisations and individuals who ensure that we continue to provide emotional support, companionship, enjoyable and meaningful activities, and access to information and advice for people living with dementia in the Sidmouth area.

We have also been fortunate enough to secure a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund ‘All Our Stories’ grant programme, which not only gave us the opportunity to gather all the stories and memories in the reminiscence area of this site, but has enabled us to produce this website.

Did you know that whenever you buy anything online – from your weekly shop to your annual holiday – you could be raising free donations for The Sid Valley Memory Cafe with easyfundraising?

There are over 4,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation – including eBay, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, Booking.com and M&S – and it won’t cost you a penny extra to help us raise funds.

  2. Every time you shop online, go to easyfundraising first to find the site you want and start shopping.
  3. After you’ve checked out, the retailer will make a donation to The Sid Valley Memory Cafe at no extra cost to you whatsoever!

There are no catches or hidden charges and The Sid Valley Memory Cafe will be really grateful for your donations.
