Team story

[p]PLEASE NOTE: We're experiencing a technical hitch on our 'Donate' page - it should say John, Ross, Lizzie & Marc run (not just Lizzie and Marc!). Trying to get fixed, but rest assured all donations go to our full team!![/p][p]Lizzie, Marc, Ross & John have teamed up to run for cause close to all our hearts, Arts4Dementia!! Arts 4 Dementia. A4D develops innovative, person-centred arts programmes to re-energise and inspire people in the early stages of dementia and carers, to help them live better for longer at home. They provide early stage dementia awareness training at London arts venues for arts facilitators from all over the country. The 500-plus workshop leaders we have trained to date are delivering arts opportunities using music art & more to well over 10,000 people living with dementia each year. [/p][p]We're especially running in memory of Marc's late father, Alan (who was a successful artist in the swinging 60’s) and for Ross' Grandma, Margaret, who adores the piano and singing (that's her playing the piano with Ross!). [/p][p]Music has a huge role to play in keeping the brain stimulated and active, as well and increasing confidence and social interaction of the elderly - both which often suffer as dementia takes hold.[/p][p]Ross has seen first hand the immense benefits of music since he took his grandma out of a nursing home 2 years ago and submerged her into an environment full of music, stimulation and love in London. Aside from daily singalongs and duets at the piano, he often takes Margaret along to Arts4Dementia funded concerts and is immensely grateful for the opportunity they bring to families to still enjoy music even when regular concert venues no longer are an option.[/p][p][br][/p][p]The Arts4Demetial[/p][p][br][/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/VafqhFpcBhA?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3"][/vmgvideo][p][br][/p][p]We'd be grateful for anything you can offer and don't forget we're donating all profits from our [url=https://debut.org.uk]DEBUT[/url] at the [url=https://www.shoreditchtreehouse.co.uk]Shoreditch Treehouse[/url] Concert on Sunday 30th September to this brilliant cause too!
