The Ilkley group for dementia awareness and support needs more committee members to help spread the load and energise the work it does in the Ilkley area.
There is a monthly support meeting, and at present members need extra hands to develop initiatives to promote dementia awareness. The Ilkley group has a few dementia awareness trainers who offer monthly sessions but the committee would like to do more publicity at events, etc. The time commitment can be as short or as long as individuals wish.
As a Committee member could you help develop dementia awareness, encourage others in the town to get involved, promote dementia training with local businesses. Maybe you have some ideas of your own you would like to see developed.
The Group is constituted, has some funds, and a bank...
A Dementia Friendly screening of White Christmas will take place at The Light, Broadway, Hall Ings, Bradford on Thursday 12th December at 12.00 noon.
Two talented song-and-dance men (Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye) team up after the war to become one of the hottest acts in show business. One winter, they join forces with a sister act (Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen) and trek to Vermont for a white Christmas.
