On Saturday 21st of October we were honoured to host our second fundraising event in aid of a charity close to our hearts, Alzheimer’s Research UK.

Local school children donate their earnings to Alzheimer’s research as part of Dementia Awareness Week

May 14, 2017 5:11 pm

Last week, local child actors Jayda and Hassan last week starred in a short film commissioned by ourselves & produced by local production firm Crooked House Films. The film is being launched as part of the National Dementia Awareness Week (May 15th to 19th) and features the two children talking about dementia including interesting facts about the condition. The film ultimately points viewers to the charity Alzheimer’s Research. We decided to use local children to highlight the importance of education regarding the condition. Sadly the statistic show that the majority of the population will be affected by dementia in some way. Therefore it is essential that as a community we are equipped with the knowledge to become a dementia friendly...
