My story

[p]On Sunday 13th October I will be running the Royal Parks half marathon to raise money for a charity very close to my heart, Arts4Dementia, and in memory of my dear Nan.[/p][p]A4D are a wonderful charity who change lives by offering challenging arts and music programmes for people in the early stages of dementia. These programmes are a vitally important part of dementia care and make a real difference to participants’ health and well-being.[/p][p]A4D also train arts facilitators from around the country in early-stage dementia awareness. The 700+ trained facilitators will deliver arts events to over 14,000 people living with dementia and carers in 2019. [/p][p]It is because of A4D that my own ‘Music for Memory’ sessions were founded and continue to go from strength to strength. They began as ‘Reawakening Music’, an A4D initiative and research project. A4D funded and supported the sessions and gave me guidance along the way, enabling me to get the programme off the ground. Almost three years on and I still run my sessions which benefit dozens of people living with dementia, their carers and friends. [/p][p]Through M4M I see the difference that music and arts programmes make to people living with dementia and I know how much work Arts4Dementia do to get these programmes to the people that need them the most. [/p][p]If this is a charity close to your heart and you would like to support the work of A4D as they change lives, then please sponsor my half marathon attempt. Any amount will help to make a difference. I’m really, really grateful for your support.[/p][p]Gemma xxx[/p]
