Event description

Description

To mark the International Day of Older People, we are covering the map of Leeds in our hall with forget-me-nots made be the people of Leeds, from September 26th until October 1st. We hope to raise awareness of dementia, as Leeds becomes a Dementia Friendly Community. The forget-me-not flower symbolises faithful love and memories. It was chosen for this reason to be the emblem of Dementia Friends, An Alzheimer’s Society Initiative.

On the last day of our Forget-Me-Not installation, October 1st, there will be poetry readings from our poetry competition Growing Older, choir performances, object handling, tea and cake. Giving voice choir will be performing. They are an inclusive choir for all adults with neurological conditions and their carers currently funded by Leeds Community Healthcare charity.
