DARLEY DALE: £500 boost for First Taste’s film

Derbyshire County Cllr Mike Longden was delighted to present a cheque for £500 to Shirley Davison, Chairman of the Darley Dale based First Taste Charity.

The grant from Cllr Longden’s DCC Community Leaders Fund is to help support the production costs of First Taste’s second reminiscence DVD “Food, Glorious Food”. The film, which hopefully will be released early in 2014, is intended to support care staff’s reminiscence work with older people with dementia in care and nursing homes or attending day care centres.

Shirley Davison expressed First Taste’s appreciation of the support of Cllr Longden and Derbyshire County Council for her organisation’s work in helping enhance the quality of life for frail older people in care settings.

Mrs Davison would like to stress that a further £4000 is needed to meet this new film’s production costs. Anyone wishing to make a donation towards the film’s cost can send their cheque, made payable to First Taste, to the First Taste Office, c/o Ladygrove Mill, Two Dales, Matlock, Derbyshire, DE4 2FH.

All donations will be acknowledged.
