Spirit of Beowulf Festival 2019- Journeys
To raise money for The Woodbridge Memory Bike,
A Project to help those with Dementia.
2019 is the second year for this festival, and we are raising funds for those who have Dementia. The Woodbridge Memory Bike was started by one of the two producers for the festival, Clare Perkins, in her year as Mayor of Woodbridge 2017/18 . We hope to raise enough money to get the project started and able to benefit those residents of Woodbridge who have Dementia and unable to get out easily, by taking them on memory rides around the town in a specially adapted Rickshaw and also taking in a cup of tea along the way.
Your support will help towards the costs of running the bike in its first year such as insurance and repairs .
Here is Clare pedalling The Woodbridge Memory Bike along the river bank .
We hope with your help and support, we can get this up and running this year.
To give those whose have dementia a chance to remember the good feeling they had when out and about in their town again, and to feel the wind in their hair, the sun on their faces and to make their heart sing again would be wonderful.
With your help we can.
Come and be a part of the four days of magic, music and mystery at The Spirit of Beowulf Festival 2019 on the banks of the beautiful River Deben in Woodbridge, Suffolk.
Early Spring Bank Holiday weekend, May 3-6 2019
