Story

*********UPDATE*********** I DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, so we’re almost at the stage where we can meet face to face again after a very long year. We can’t tell you how excited we all are at Minds and Voices to actually have a hug from each other, so important for people with dementia. However, each year it takes a massive £10,000 to keep Minds and Voices up and running. We provide taxis for those that need them, a lunch and room hire to name just 3 things.

Sooooo for my next fundraising adventure I’ll be doing a Tandem Paraglide over my beloved paradise of Keswick. It’s all booked for the end of June initially but obviously we’re in the hands of the weather for it to go ahead, but if not June, it’ll be July.....or August or whenever, but it WILL happen.

I know it’s not a good time to ask for donations, but every £1 counts so please sponsor me if you can.....🤗

A LITTLE ABOUT MINDS AND VOICES

We are a peer group of people living with dementia, meeting regularly in York.

We feel we have done a lot to promote a positive message that people can live as well as one can with a diagnosis of dementia.

We aim to provide a welcoming, fun and reassuring space for people with dementia to be ourselves. Meeting and sharing amongst equals gives us a new lease of life and new friends.

We are not facilitated or supported by salaried staff from local health, social or funded third sector services. Although that gives the group a certain degree of freedom and independence it brings a real uncertainty and vulnerability too.

We need funds to continue meeting as a group; to support an extra facilitator as the group is now growing; and to deliver more courses for people newly diagnosed with dementia. like this one we created and delivered in York.

Liz highlighted the work needed to continue to ‘open minds’
‘Honestly people think we’re ga-ga! ’You can’t have dementia, I see you walking around town,' they said.'

Minds and Voices has given me my life back. Elaine
