CooperBurnett is supporting a special St George’s Day Concert (on Saturday 23 April) in aid of the Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells Dementia Friendly Communities. It’s taking place at St Peter’s & St Paul’s Church in Tonbridge and features the Royal Tunbridge Wells Orpheus Male Voice Choir and Tonbridge Community Singers, who will be presenting a fabulous evening of songs from the shows, as well as classical, popular and traditional music.
CooperBurnett was the first business in Tunbridge Wells to officially be named as ‘dementia friendly’ and, since then, Associate Solicitor, Katie Hancock, from our Private Client team has become a Dementia Friends Champion.
“Within the Private Client team, we have all developed specialist areas and I have become increasingly involved with supporting our elderly and vulnerable clients,” says Katie. “It’s an area we simply can’t ignore. There is currently no cure for dementia and more and more people will be living with it as the years go on. As a community, there isn’t as much understanding as there could be and, through Dementia Friends, we are hoping to change that.”
Dementia Friends is a national initiative from Alzheimer’s Society that aims to change the way we think, act and talk about dementia. There is already an active Dementia Friendly Community in Tonbridge, led by Christine Parker from Abbey Funeral Services, and a similar initiative has recently launched in Tunbridge Wells.
Tickets for the concert are £10 and available from the CooperBurnett office in Tunbridge Wells or Abbey Funeral Services (173 High Street, Tonbridge). They will also be available on the door. For more information, visit: www.tonbridgedfc.org.uk
