We need your help - and your money!

Opening a dementia centre in Warminster has been a dream of ours for many years. 

When we found The Old Silk Works in Beech Avenue we knew our long search for the perfect building was over. The first floor of this beautiful building offers everything we need, and will provide a base for our dementia services in Warminster and surrounding villages.

We are thrilled to announce that the building opened in May - and exceeds our expectations. With the strong support of the Warminster community - and a small army of volunteers - we have created and equipped a welcoming space that is already making such a difference to the lives of people with dementia and their carers in Warminster. 

Renovating and equipping the Victorian building has been hugely costly for our charity. We are leaving no stone unturned to raise funds and are approaching trusts, foundations and companies - but we also need the support of you - the community.  As well as meeting building costs we have needed furniture, doors, heaters, kitchen equipment, craft materials, tables, storage, art equipment, games... and the list goes on. We still need to find funds for a new ceiling, to complete the quiet lounge area and to provide more activities and finishing touches to the building. Every penny you can raise will make the centre a better place and help keep it open into the future.

How you can help 

You can simply make a donation to help us meet our fundraising target.

Or donate an item. We are looking for specific items to equip the new building - from games and activities to kitchen equipment. See our wishlist.

Why not do something fun to raise money. Anything from a coffee morning to jumping out of a plane can raise much needed funds. We have lots of ideas to get you started

If you are doing your own event, you can set up your own fundraising page to share with family and friends and their donations will come direct to us.

Brian thumbs up

Brian, who lives in Warminster, will be one of the first to benefit from The Old Silk Works.

He said: "I visited the club in Trowbridge and it was super. It is the sort of place where you can get your mind back. There wasn't room for me there so we need a club like this in Warminster as soon as possible."

June will be among the first to attend the new day club.

Her husband Ken: "June enjoys herself the most when meeting new people and I know The Old Silk Works will be a great place for that.”
