Patron scheme

Since the launch of our Patrons group in November 2014, members of the community and local businesses have generously supported us with regular donations. So far, these contributions have helped us to develop events for people with dementia and their carers, as part of our Arts & Health programme. Including lively and light-hearted singing sessions which provide an opportunity to share memories and a love of songs; and museum tours at the Museum of Farnham which offer a chance to explore an element of the collection with the curatorial team. The programme is managed by Kath Boddy, also funded through the Patrons group.

As well as helping us reach out to people with dementia, we are also delighted that donations from our Patrons support our work with young people too. Their regular contributions have recently funded a piece of work by Step by Step, a homeless support charity based in Aldershot. A group of clients from the charity collaborated with London-based company Clicking Machine to create a short documentary about Step by Step and their work with young people. The group then presented the piece at Spark Youth Arts festival, Spark: an artistic celebration of Waverley’s young people.

Delivered by the Maltings and Waverley Borough Council, the festival showcased new work by a number of community groups, including Haslemere Home Education Group, Hale Sure Start Centre, Over the Top Youth Theatre, Step by Step, Wrecclesham Cub Scouts and 40 Degreez.

Step by Step were so impressed with the documentary that it will now be used as a resource for all new clients that come to the charity.
