A CAFE is serving up even more help with the launch of its second branch.

The Memory Lane Cafe has already proved a success at Seaham Day Centre, offering carers of those with Alzhemier’s disease, dementia and other memory-releated problems, as well as the sufferers themselves, a place to meet others and seek support.

Now its leaders have set up another cafe, at Eppleton and Hetton Community Hall.

Among those attending the official launch was Bridget Philipson, MP for Houghton and Sunderland South.

Caroline Atkinson, manager of Seaham Day Centre who also runs the Hetton meetings, said: “We are starting the outreach cafe to give carers and their loved ones a place to meet and socialise and be sign posted to other agencies.”

The new cafe will meet on the third Monday of each month from 6pm to 9pm.

The Seaham’s Memory Lane Cafe is held from 9am to 5pm from Monday to Friday in Bradbury House, Malborough.
