Local School Raises Funds for M.C.M.
In September of 2019 MCM received a truly inspirational letter from a local school girl named Poppy.
The letter, expressed and re-enforced to us how important our work is, Poppy had nominated our group for a fund-raising event at her school by submitting a lovely heart-felt letter to her school council.
Her letter expressed her love for her great-grandma and how much she misses her and how creative and fun she was. Poppy writes that her Grandma was diagnosed with Dementia and If her Great Grandma was still alive, she would be actively participating in ‘My Colourful Memories’ activities.
Poppy’s school provided an afternoon tea event in early February 2020 and Great- Grandparents, Grandparents and Parents of pupils from the school were invited. The school provided refreshments and entertainment. Children danced and sang songs old and new; it was amazing, the school raised a total of: £680 to go towards creating more art health events for families and people who live with dementia in Lancashire.
