Reminiscence Learning seeks funding to move project into Taunton schools
9:00pm Tuesday 3rd September 2013 in News
A CHARITY working to make towns in Somerset dementia-friendly is seeking funding to bring their tried and tested project to schools in Taunton.
The Archie Project, created by charity Reminiscence Learning, aims to educate children through the character Archie, the brightly coloured scarecrow, and workbooks which tell his story.
Teachers in 24 schools across Somerset are already running especially designed sessions which include singing, reading and acting, as well as visits to local care homes.
All these projects are up and running thanks to a number of grants, including one from Prime Minister David Cameron’s dementia champion group and another from the Gannett Foundation, thanks to your County Gazette.
However, the project has no links with schools in Taunton despite being based in the town, and is now looking for funding to change the situation.
If your organisation or business can help fund the project, contact the Reminiscence Learning Team at The Horizon Centre, Swingbridge, Taunton TA2 8BY, call 01823-323752/433720 or email email@example.com
