Introducing the "Forget Me Not Tea Room" Project - A Place of Warmth and Memories

At We Change Lives, we believe in the power of compassion and creating spaces that foster love and connection. Today, we are delighted to share an exciting project that will not only honour the memory of those we lost during the pandemic, but also bring immeasurable joy to our residents and their families. Introducing the "Forget Me Not Tea Room" project – creating a haven of warmth and cherished memories.



When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, we faced unprecedented challenges in ensuring the safety and well-being of our beloved elderly residents at Heathside and The Mews care homes. You may remember that it was during these trying times that we came together as a community and built visitation pods in the grounds, allowing families to safely reunite and share precious moments of love and support.


Now, as we emerge from the shadows of the pandemic, we are filled with gratitude and hope. We saw an opportunity to transform these visitation pods into something truly extraordinary – a tearoom that would serve as a sanctuary of comfort and connection for our residents. Thus, the "Forget Me Not Tea Room" idea was born.


The name "Forget Me Not" holds deep significance to us. It is a heartfelt tribute to the lives we lost during the pandemic – individuals who will forever remain in our hearts. The tearoom will serve as a living memorial, reminding us to cherish every moment with our loved ones and to never forget the profound impact they had on our lives.


But we couldn't embark on this heartwarming journey alone. We are thrilled to collaborate with Kid's Planet Great Sankey, a remarkable local nursery that shares our vision of intergenerational connection and community support. Together, we aim to raise funds and create a space where young and old can come together, creating beautiful memories that span generations.


We are incredibly grateful for the support of a dedicated local tradesman who has generously offered their expertise. Their invaluable contribution, from laying the perfect flooring to ensuring the tearoom is equipped with the comforts of modernity, is bringing us closer to our shared vision.


Now, we turn to you, our compassionate community, for your support. Your donations, no matter the size, will make a tangible difference in making the "Forget Me Not Tea Room" a reality. Your kindness and generosity will create a space where our residents can relax, share stories, and build new memories with their loved ones.


We are filled with anticipation as we prepare to unveil the "Forget Me Not Tea Room" this summer. The smiles, laughter, and heartfelt conversations that will echo within its walls will serve as a testament to the indomitable spirit of our community and the enduring power of love.



Stay tuned for updates on our website and social media channels as we embark on this transformative journey together. Let's honour those we lost, celebrate life, and create a space that radiates warmth, empathy, and connection.
