Oliphant said: ‘Around 40 per cent of people will be touched by dementia in this country, so we will use Time for a Cuppa to build awareness of the hard facts - but also understanding of the support and help that is that is available through the charity.

'The event already sees wide participation from existing supporters of the charity, so we have developed a creative and emotive PR strategy that will broaden its appeal and catch the attention of a wider consumer audience.

She added: ‘We will be using a variety of tactics across traditional and social media from fabulous tea parties with high-profile supporters to an enormous virtual tea party on Twitter.

'Alongside our programme packed with tea, cake and fun, we will also be using the event to highlight the serious gaps in access to Admiral Nurses across the country which urgently needs to be addressed.'
