We were proud to be able to launch the first of many events to be held over the coming months to promote dignity within the community and raise awareness of the issues and barriers facing the elderly among us on the run up to ‘Older Peoples Awareness Day‘ on October 1st 2010.
Pictured is Ms. Karen Hughes our Registered Managing Director presenting Sarah Gizzi the Manager of Age Cymru, Bodfor Street, Rhyl with a cheque for £176.40.
We also donated 10% of the monies raised to Sainsbury’s Supermarket in Rhyl for their chosen charity. The manager kindly donated the monies to Age Cymru.
The launch took place over 2 days at Sainsbury’s Supermarket in Rhyl. Without the welcome and kind hospitality afforded to us by all the staff at Sainsbury’s, we would not have been able to raise awareness of the barriers facing older people in the community and to promote dignity.
Our aim is to encounter people of all generations and present them with free information on how to promote dignity awareness in the community on a daily basis. The leaflets we’ve produced give just a few ideas on how each individual can make a difference to someone’s day by making them feel worthwhile and valued within the community whatever their age or disability. If you’d like a copy of our promoting dignity flier, please do not hesitate to contact us at Michael Phillips Care Agency Ltd.
We chose to raise money on the day for Age Cymru, this decision was made because of the outstanding work they do in relation to supporting the elderly and vulnerable. You can gather valuable information on their website at http://www.agecymru.org.uk. They can give you specialist advice on what you are entitled to, so it’s well worth giving them a call.
We are holding a number of similar events in the run up to “Older People’s Awareness Day” on October 1st, and also hope to include some secondary schools to enable us to promote awareness across the generations and attempt to close that gap via an understanding and respect for those who quite frankly have so much to share, have done and seen so many things and had many life experiences they can share with the younger generations.
