Christmas Campaign: Tea, Cake & Art
TEA, CAKE & ART
Our Big Give Christmas Campaign – Thank You!
Everyone, whatever their age or circumstance, is entitled to enjoy the arts and participate in cultural life. We know from our work in care homes, and from talking to the Dementia Action Alliance, AGE UK and Alzheimer’s Society, of the enormous benefits to health and wellbeing sociable creativity brings to those suffering memory loss, and to their carers. We are working hard to make the galleries age- and dementia-friendly.
We are very happy to say that, with your help, this year’s Christmas campaign, Creating New Memories, raised a mighty £7,000. This also included matched funds from the Postcode Support Trust and sponsorship from Penderlaw Solicitors and Kensall Steele Chartered Accountants. This joins support from BBC Radio Cornwall Appeal Fund and The Santander Discovery Fund.
We can now plan to create a warm and welcoming age-friendly environment at both venues, and establish regular Tea, Cake and Art sessions at The Exchange for those with dementia and their carers.
All donations made to the project, all supporter subscriptions and all business sponsorship will be DOUBLED by Catalyst: Evolve until August 2019, your support is making projects such as Creating New Memories possible.
Thank you for your support.
