Memory Tree

13th September 2019, 11:34am | By Stephany Bardzil |

People in Salisbury are invited to add a leaf to Alzheimer’s Support’s Memory Tree in Salisbury Cathedral cloister on Friday.

People can add a leaf in memory of a loved one, or to record a special memory at the event to mark World Alzheimer’s Day.

CEO Babs Harris said: “We have an amazing tree made by members of our art groups, and plenty of extra leaves for anyone who wishes to write a memory.

“Some people write the name of a loved one who has passed away and others may wish to share a memory from childhood or a place or time that is special to them.  Once a memory is written down it becomes even more potent. We will keep all the leaves safe for next year and do it all over again.”

Volunteers and staff from Alzheimer’s Support will be on hand between 11am and 2pm to talk about any aspect of living with dementia, and there will be refreshments available.
