Our first intergenerational Easter Concert was held virtually on 31 March and went out live on Facebook. What a success!
Over 1,000 people participated and interacted through Zoom and the live stream. We were joined by people in care homes and in their own homes; children and a nursery school; proud parents who watched their children singing, acting, delivering monologues and playing the violin.
The Alzheimer’s Society group, the Worthing Town Cryers, put together Easter poems and the whole programme was compiled by Tim Wilkins, Service User Involvement Officer.
Chairman of Dementia Friendly Worthing, Bob Smytherman, compared the afternoon and ensured we ran to time and the concert was brought to a close with a special ‘Thank You’ from the High Sheriff of West Sussex, Dr Tim Fooks.
Ric Gray encouraged everyone to join in with the singing of traditional Easter songs.
Dementia Friendly Worthing focuses on the community and making things happen. This was no exception and we want to thank everyone for taking part.
