    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Here at Meadowside, we are raising funds to buy our residents with dementia a Tovertafel. This unique innovation connects older people in the late stage of their dementia journey with each other and with their surroundings, all the while stimulating movement.

    The Tovertafel - Dutch for magic table - was developed for and with people in the moderate to severe stages of dementia. The interactive games break through apathy by stimulating both physical and cognitive activity and encouraging social interaction. Moreover, the Tovertafel creates treasured moments with family members and carers. These games are all about enjoyment and wonder!

    The Tovertafel is a little box with a high-quality projector, infrared sensors, speaker, and processor that work together to project the games onto the table. Because the colourful objects respond to hand and arm movements, residents get to play with the light itself. These activities invite individuals to interact independently, whether it be by popping bubbles, sweeping leaves or interacting playfully with fish.

    We were recently lucky enough to trial a Tovertafel here at Meadowside and it was an absolute hit with our residents. We are confident that this piece of equipment will be a substantial impact on our residents suffering from all stages of dementia.

    For further information, please speak to Harinder Kalsy our leisure and lifestyle coordinator or check out the Tovertafel in action at

    Please give what you can, however little it is.
