Earlier this week, I put out appeals on Twitter and Facebook for help with certain aspects of Digging for Dementia, such as buying supplies for the launch party, and raising money to fund the project’s running costs, such as insurance. I’ve been completely overwhelmed by the response I’ve received, from family, friends old and new, and even from people I’ve never met, who have been eager to pitch in and help with getting Digging for Dementia ready for its big launch on Saturday August 17th. Whether you’ve helped by enquiring about volunteering for the project, making a purchase from Digging for Dementia’s Amazon wish list, donating to the project via PayPal, or simply spreading the word via social media, I’m more grateful than I could ever begin to articulate. Thanks to all your help this week, I’ll be able to have everything ready for the Digging for Dementia launch, and to keep things running when the practical sessions start on 24th August, so thank you very much!
I now have five participants signed up to Digging for Dementia, with interest from several others, so I’m well and truly ready to launch! I’d like to keep the group relatively small, so I only have about three spaces left, though if I receive a significant amount of interest I’d be happy to run a second group on Saturday afternoons. If you’d like to register to participate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. I can’t wait to get started!
