About this event
Do you work for a charity, community group or project which supports older members of the community?
Are you looking for funding to support your work or the opportunity to present your work to the public?
Bluebird Care Ferndown is sponsoring a free community event to celebrate services for older people and launching a new community grant scheme to benefit one local charity or community group in Blandford Forum and surrounding villages.
Celebrating services for older people
On Monday November 12th, Bluebird Care Ferndown is hosting a special event at the Corn Exchange, Blandford, to celebrate the many charities and groups who work so hard for older members of the community. Exhibitors will be given a free table to display their own promotional material. There will be music, displays and free refreshments will be provided for exhibitors and visiting members of the public.
Improving quality of life for older people
Bluebird Care Ferndown is also offering £250 to one project which will have a positive impact on the lives of older people in the community. We want to work with a local project that gives older people an opportunity to try something new and that will add benefit to their lives. Examples of the type of projects we are looking for could include gardening, leisure, recreational, help with day trips or musical activities. This scheme will be launched on Monday 17th September and the closing date for applications is Friday 2nd November.
