Square Chapel Team up with Memory Lane Cafe and Alzheimer’s Society to show ‘Still Alice’

Memory Lane Café from Sowerby Bridge and Halifax have teamed up with the Square Chapel for a special showing of the 2014 film “Still Alice”. The film stars Julianne Moore and Alec Baldwin and it charts the progress of early onset dementia. There will be a wide range of support organisations with information and advice. Alzheimer’s Society will also be on hand to offer one-to-one information and support for anyone who has questions around dementia.

The film will be shown at 2pm on Tuesday 28 November in the main Red Brick auditorium. Tickets (£4) are on sale at Square Chapel www.squarechapel.co.uk or phone 01422 349422.

Representation at the display will be from 1pm until after the film has finished. There will be a second showing of the film at 11am on Wednesday 29 November. This time slot, in the smaller Copper auditorium, is Mums and baby friendly. Leaflets will continue to be displayed on the Wednesday but the display will have only minimal representation present.

Organisations are keen to use this opportunity to promote all services and activities which are available throughout Calderdale for those living with and affected by dementia. Square Chapel have kindly offered space to display leaflets and promotional material before and after both viewings.

Gig Buddies Calderdale

What an impressive start to Gig Buddies!

Gig Buddies is a new initiative within Calderdale which aims to promote social inclusion among people who have a learning disability.

The scheme aims to reduce the barriers faced by people with a learning disability in relation to accessing social activities. These have been identified as attending the theatre, cinema, live music and anything else that a person may wish to engage within their leisure time.

This new idea aims to match volunteers who will be referred to as ‘Gig Buddies’ with people who have a learning disability, our ‘Gig Goers’ based upon shared interests. The aim is to create opportunities for people to meet and forge friendships based upon shared interests. Gig Buddies will match buddies with people and arrange introductions and give support on your first gig, whatever this may be. They would then leave you to meet once per month to meet up independently and make arrangements to attend other events.

The initiative is being funded by Adult Health and Social Care and is being delivered in partnership with Square Chapel Arts Centre and the Brighton based charity Stay Up Late.

Gig Buddies is currently recruiting volunteers for this exciting new scheme and if this is something that you would like to hear more about, please contact gemma@squarechapel.co.uk, call her at Square Chapel on 01422 3494222 or drop in to see Gemma at Square Chapel.
