Erin is running the New Forest 10k on 9th September 2018 to raise money for some items desperately needed for our Memory Boxes.
The Memory Box Project regularly visits hospitals, care homes, day centres and carers groups and runs reminiscence sessions. It focuses on Sight, Sound, Touch and Smell to help trigger memories and improve wellbeing for people living with dementia.
The money raised will fund:
24 x new hospital safe and easily transportable RED memory boxes for easy recognition and improvement of our service
A full set of new AromaPrime scent boxes
A new portable record player for playing show tunes, music and natural sounds
An MP3 Player and accompanying set of portable speakers to more easily play music, ideal for games and music quizzes
Hundreds of people will benefit from these items and if anyone can spare a few pennies to help us reach our goal we would be hugely grateful.
To keep up to date with our project, and what we are doing follow us on Facebook www.facebook.com/WHTthememoryboxproject
We will have regular updates of training and build up towards the big day- its going to be tough!
