We will be setting up our art exhibition which will feature work done by people living with dementia and also carers – please let us know if you have any pieces you would like to share and we will be happy to come and pick them up.
The Stamford Arts Centre gallery is open daily between 9 am – 9pm so our exhibition will hopefully be seen by lots of people.
The exhibition will not only showcase our art but will highlight other ways our charity supports people affected by dementia in our little corner of Lincolnshire.
Everyone is invited to the opening of our exhibition which will be on the evening of Tuesday 15 May between 6–8pm.
A local artist, Karen Neale, will be the official opener and we hope we will also be joined by the “great and the good” i.e. local dignitaries, businesses, supporters, other charities etc. If you have any ideas about who we should invite then please let us know – we’re open to all suggestions. This is a great opportunity to raise awareness and we want to do the very best we can.
We will also be running some taster sessions based around our regular therapeutic activity groups which are open to everyone:
Art for All:Tuesday 15 May from 11am–1pm
Tai Chi:Wednesday16 May, at The Arts Centre between 2–3pm
Singing Together: Thursday 17 May between 1–3pm
We are also hoping to run a couple of Dementia Friends sessions.

Won’t be long now – are you up for the Sunflower Challenge again this year?
Seeds will be sent out in our Spring newsletter which will be dropping through your door after Easter. If you’re not on our mailing list and would like to take part and try to raise a bit of money for Dementia Support South Lincs, send a message ASAP.
Our Art for All group has started working on their sunflowers too – what to you think?
