Memory Fest ’16 – The Launch!

Morning everyone

Hope you all had a great weekend! February already, can’t believe how quickly the time is moving (is that a sign I am getting old, I wonder?)

I’ve had quite an exciting weekend with the ‘launch’ or at least announcement that Memory Fest will be happening this year! OK, I know you are thinking, what is Memory Fest?

Well, it’s an idea that I had last year, 2015, and it is finally coming to life, I hope I don’t bore you all with it over the next 3 months.

I am organising, with help from a team of like minded people, a Live Music Gig at Club Bliss in Kirkintilloch on 1st May 2016 – raising awareness and much needed funds for Dementia UK and Alzheimer Scotland through Classic Rock!

We will have two live Bands on the evening, with some other potentially very interesting activities planned to go along side and during the intervals.

Our Facebook page is live now, if you have time please have a look at it and maybe share it amongst your ‘friends’. The more support we receive the more funds we can raise. Oh yes, there is a Twitter thingy too, but not sure how much this will be used.

I realise that not everyone will be able to come along on the night and so have also organised online fundraising through Just Giving so that people can pledge on line (I think it is also possible to set up a text donation facility too but I haven’t got that sorted yet!).

There is still a lot of planning to do yet but wanted to let you guys know sooner rather than later so hopefully you can get the date in your diary.

Wish me luck, please!
