Forum celebrates First Anniversary of Dementia Tea Dances
Thursday last saw celebrations of a milestone with the first anniversary of the Millennium Forum’s Dementia Tea Dances and a great turnout from right across the city to mark the occasion.
The Dementia Friendly Tea Dances, part of ‘Access to Arts for All’ have been running now for a year and Thursday’s event saw residents from seven care homes across the city and district represented as well as others, enjoy a superb high tea, entertainment and dancing through the kind support of Millennium Forum staff and directors.
Speaking during the event, Forum director, Dr. Dolores O’Reilly took time out to thank the many sponsors who donated to the event.
‘I am delighted to see such a great turnout to celebrate this first anniversary. It is so wonderful to see so many of you here today including those of you who have not missed one! I would like to thank our many sponsors. This event is entirely run on donations and without the help of those such as Diamond Corrugated, Specsavers, Marian Simpson, Storm Media, White’s News and Views, Staywalledcity, The Old Docks Bar and Grill and D. McBrearty Window Specialists we could not have sustained the event. A big thank you to you all.’
