In these strange and isolating times here is a wonderful film showcasing Living with Aphasia with our fabulous choir singing “Stand by Me”.
The film was made by Jon, who has had a stroke with aphasia, together with his marvellous band, The Red Rock Blues. Our singing group, led by Sam from La La Choirs, has provided the backing tracks and the film includes lovely pictures from our drop in group and creative art sessions. Well done Jon and the team!
We’re all about helping and having a good chat to make you feel good. We recently purchased an Ipad and uploaded photos of the things we are getting up to. It’s been amazing how much we use it to share stories, learn about others and start off conversations.
For example, Andi found it helped him to understand what our charity has done in the past. He looked through our section on our raising awareness, fundraising and activity pages. Adam also found it helpful to know who everyone was and it helped him with finding the names of everybody. Ian found it useful to start off a chat with a new person to the group.
Thanks to our generous donors for the fantastic ipads.
What a fabulous afternoon Living with Aphasia spent at the Well Being Exeter Market Place event. It was lovely to meet and make great connections with other community groups and services that are working in our area. Lots of useful chat about future joint working!
The afternoon started with some presentations – Living with Aphasia was one of the talks. It was good to spread the word about aphasia and our charity – lots of people commented afterwards that they had no idea what aphasia was before! Emily produced a stunning video to raise awareness of the condition.
Thank you to Ena and David for manning the stall too – you did a great job!
