New Bluebells Dementia Day Centre Charity Becomes Official

A new charity to replace the Bluebells Community Club which closed at the Christ Centre last March has been formed by Henley Mayor, Councillor Glen Lambert which offers support to people living with dementia and their families.

The new charity will be called Bluebells Day Centre and the Mayor received confirmation this week from The Charity Commission that it is now an official registered charity (Charity No. 1181582). The new charity is one of the Mayor’s three charities for his mayoral year.

Glen said, “The decision by The Charity Commission came weeks before we expected it and we are all extremely happy that this hugely significant milestone has been reached.

Becoming an official registered charity will enable us to apply for the grants required to relaunch the Bluebells service in Henley and resume the provision of respite care for dementia sufferers and their carers that the town has lacked for 9 months.

I will be speaking to the trustees over the coming days so that we can progress the project and plan for a launch date.”
