Dear Matinée contact,

The Alzheimer's Society give our dementia friendly films project tremendous support across the county. However, they need more volunteers to help them specifically in Dronfield and Chesterfield. If you know anyone who might be interested, please ask them to contact.

Here's their call out: "Group support volunteers help to inform, educate, support and provide structured activities with defined outcomes for attendees in a relaxed and safe group setting. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers for a number of our groups in Dronfield and Chesterfield. You will provide support to the group leader to enable people affected by dementia to engage with and socialise with other group members or participants in a welcoming and non-judgemental environment. Groups needing support include; Memory Café and Activity Group Volunteer (Chesterfield), Memory Café and Activity Group Volunteer (Dronfield), Singing for the Brain Volunteer (Dronfield), Carers Support Group Volunteer (Chesterfield)."

Please pass on to anyone who might be able to respond to the Alzheimer's Society's request.

Many thanks,

Frances Watt
