So, today we had our Spoken Word event in the Cathedral. And it was fantastic!
The audio version of this will be available on this webpage once we have sorted out the technology.
Many thanks to Helen Smith (see above) from Mapplewell Manor. Thanks also to Barnsley Alzheimer’s Society and the volunteers who came and stood in admirably for our long term supporter and friend Diane Hinchliffe.
And it was great to hear from Anne Ashmore, a long-term contributor of poems to the South Yorkshire Dementia Creative Arts Exhibition.
We welcomed persons from care homes and persons living in the community to attend and read out their poems in the intimate setting of the Shrewsbury Chapel.
This is the 4th year we have done this and next year we have already decided that we must generate a bigger audience. Please get in touch if you would like to help do that with us.
