Forget Me Not is a charity group run by volunteers for anyone with any illness that needs a Carer to look after them at the Social Centre, Camposol B on Monday/Thursday morning from 10am-1pm giving respite to the Carer.
We have a trained nurse at every meeting as well as volunteers with various skills. Forget Me Not ‘Cares for the Carer’ and our valuable sessions free up quality time for the Carer who is constantly in demand looking after their loved ones every need. Our meetings provide tea, coffee and biscuits and a free lunch of sandwiches and chips for clients.
Remember we are always there for the Carer with help, advice, or just a sympathetic ear. At every meeting we have a craft session for those who want to join in, making things from scary hedgehogs to jubilee crowns. We have men playing dominoes with quite a club going. We do chair exercises with a singalong and sometimes we enjoy Play Your Cards Right or games like snakes and ladders and Jenga.
We try to organise music once a month and in September the Ukulele Group entertained us and they will be returning in December. In October, Still In The Groove came to entertain us. Hopefully the Singalong Group will be back this month. Our clients really enjoy the music mornings as do the volunteers.

We would like to thank MAD for their donation in September, Chatterbox Ladies’ Group for their donation and Debbie Shaw who is donating money throughout the year from certain jobs she does, Michelle Miles and La Nueva Taberna for organising a Race Night and Raffle raising 340€ and our Quiz Night at The Diner in September which raised 304€. We can’t thank people who donate to us enough for their kindness and support. It makes such a difference to helping us keep our services free of charge for our clients enabling us to ‘Care for the Carer’.
