I AM writing to offer businesses a very special opportunity to improve the lives of people living with dementia here within our Wells community. A number of local businesses have already taken the opportunity to become a Somerset Arts Well Community Friend and we do hope that you will join them.
For as little as £200, your company can become a sponsor, and as part of the sponsorship package, we will include your company logo on our advertising material.
Our advertising strategy includes a dedicated social media campaign, articles in the Wells Voice and Wells Nub News and physical posters in and around Wells. In addition, we will also provide a Somerset Arts Well Community Friend window sticker for you to proudly display.
With so many good causes out there to support, I want to leave you with the impact our Singing for the Brain sessions in Seager Hall, Wells, have already had on our community:
“I enjoy Singing for the Brain so much; I really enjoy the company, I’ve made new friends, developed my confidence with singing and playing with the instruments… It’s very therapeutic.” David, a dementia client.
“The people who run this group are just so inspirational and lovely! It’s hugely beneficial for carers to meet others in the same situation and realise
you’re not alone. It’s always a joyful, uplifting experience to attend SftB and there’s always a lot of much-needed laughter.” Melissa, wife and unpaid carer of a client.
“I have been privileged to see first-hand the enthusiasm and commitment with which Somerset Arts Well boosts intergenerational cohesion between young and old residents with their inspirational Singing for the Brain sessions.” Councillor Philip Welch, 647th Mayor of Wells and chair of Wells Dementia Action Alliance.
Your support and generosity can genuinely change lives.
Emma Wheat, Somerset Arts Well, Wells
