The Brimmond Challenge!

news

As many of you will know, our core funding was withdrawn from 31 March 2021 and we are passionate about wanting The Living Well Project to continue.  This past year has been difficult for many people but particularly those living with dementia and their carers, following the closure of all day-care support. Throughout the year we have been keeping in touch with people by different methods, we have also tried to bring some cheer into your living rooms through our capers.

 

We are continuing to seek alternative sources of funding but meanwhile Linda & Jeanette have decided to embark upon a challenge to raise funds ….. and this is where you come in.  We are planning to do a continual ‘dawn till dusk’ climb (well, 7 am till 7 pm!) up and down Brimmond Hill on Saturday 5 June and would so appreciate it if you could lend your support to this worthwhile cause.  We have set up a JustGiving page https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/brimmondchallenge whereby you can pledge money to The Living Well Project.  Alternatively, you can donate in cash or by cheque if that’s easier for you.  We will start our escapade from the car park along from Craibstone Golf Course at 7 am and will just keep on going up and down the hill as long as our little leggies will allow!   We are thrilled that a team of Occupational Therapists from ARI are also supporting us on the day – they are already NHS heroes and we hope they will indeed offer life support to our small, local charity. We would be delighted to see you, whether you take your flask and have a fly cup and a blether with us at the bottom of the hill or if you’re feeling energetic and want to join us on part of our antics.  There’s a bench halfway up with bonny views towards the hills of Deeside.

 

Your support would really be appreciated and would mean that The Living Well Project can continue to support the vulnerable and isolated in our local communities.  Please share this widely with family and friends so that we can raise as much funds as possible – we maybe won’t reach the dizzy heights of Captain Sir Tom but we do want to do our very best for the Project.
