National Brain Appeal charity fundraiser on National Cream Tea Day – Jam or cream first?


LOCAL baker Jen Perry from Room Forty will be donning her apron to raise funds for the National Brain Appeal On Friday, June 28, after hearing a friend’s heart-rending story about his wife’s fight with early Dementia, after being diagnosed aged just 51.

It follows the difficult decision by Warrington-Worldwide’s founder and Editor Gary Skentelbery to go public on his family’s difficult dementia journey over the past six years.

Jen’s own stepfather Tony passed away from Dementia in December 2023, so she is well aware of the tragic impact that the disease has on the person, their family members and friends and is keen to help in the fight to find a cure so that other families don’t have to suffer in the future.

“I asked Gary to decide on the charity that he would like the funds raised to go to and he has selected the National Brain Appeal, as they specialise in fundraising for rare dementias,” said Jen.
Gary added: “I have been overwhelmed with the messages of support from friends and complete strangers and would like to say a big thank you to Jen for her very kind offer to help raise funds and awareness about these terrible conditions which are sadly becoming more common.”

The event will be held on National Cream Tea Day, at JD Kitchens in Padgate. Orders for the individually boxed scones with serviette can be placed with Room Forty by Wednesday 26 June, with a few available on the day for people to enjoy in the kitchen showroom with a cup of tea.
Order and collect a box of scones for your workplace, for family and friends, or just for yourself. Each scone with clotted cream and jam is priced at only £3.50 with all the profits going to the charity. Jam or cream first? It’s up to you!

Orders are now being taken by Jen on 01925 357940 or email [email protected]
So give colleagues, friends and yourself a treat and raise money to support research and support for a fantastic charity at the same time.

Jen assures those on a diet that these delicious scones come guilt and calorie free*
