Maria’s tea and cakes


In 2013 I began hosting free tea and cake afternoons for local elderly residents. I wanted to create a warm social gathering for the older residents of Saltdean to come together and to find companionship.  My hope is these afternoons promote wellbeing and combat loneliness by bringing people together to share stories over tea and cakes.


We have had a great response locally and have been supported by many heads of the community. At these gatherings we chat about all sorts of things, but we mostly laugh together and talk about the good old days.  I feel really proud to be working alongside and networking with other caring organisations and feel privileged and enjoy meeting such interesting people.


I am even being taught to sew by an 82 year old!
