Collective Encounters get ₤4k grant from Morrisons Foundation

LOCAL charity Collective Encounters has received a ₤4,200 donation to run creative arts workshops for people who have dementia and their carers in Merseyside.

The donation, awarded by the Morrisons Foundation, will fund twenty sessions and cover the costs of producing 200 arts and dementia pocket guides which will be given out for free during the workshops. The sessions aim to improve the health and wellbeing of participants by providing fun, creative and engaging activities.

The cheque was presented on behalf of the Morrisons Foundation by Ruth Gibson from the Morrisons store in New Brighton, who said:- "We were delighted to present this cheque to a charity which is supporting people who have dementia in our local community."

Aimee Rumbelow from Collective Encounters said:- "We are extremely grateful to the Morrisons Foundation for awarding us this grant, which will help to improve the lives of people living with dementia."

The Morrisons Foundation was set up by Morrisons supermarkets in 2015 and gets most of its funding from the sale of single use carrier bags. Charities are encouraged to visit:- MorrisonsFoundation.Com to find out how to apply for funding.
