Hilarity encouraged at Ab Fab Movie screening
Hilarity encouraged at Absolutely Fabulous Movie screening during Queensland Seniors Week Unlike our British counterparts where grannies have been asked to leave the cinema and to be quiet, Care to Move's screening of the Absolutely Fabulous movie is encouraging hilarity, all in the name of supporting Alzheimer's Australia (Qld), during Seniors Week on Sunday, 14 August 2016.
Directors of Brisbane small business Care to Move, Clarissa Brandt and Leah Steinberg who initially just wanted to get together to see the movie, thought it would be a great idea to host a screening and try to raise as much money through ticket sales, raffles and prizes for research into dementia.
"We are thrilled to be holding this event in Seniors Week to acknowledge and connect with all ages but in particular, the absolutely fabulous contribution the elderly make to our society," Leah said.
"People often say they become invisible as they grow older, are excluded and can feel particularly lonely. The reality is, people have much to offer, no matter their age. By including seniors in everyday activities and social events everyone gains from the knowledge, humour, opinion, love and care they provide."
By holding this Seniors Week event, Care to Move is inviting movers and groovers of all ages to join the multi-generational challenge. One of the aims of Senior Week is to enhance community connections and inter-generational relationships so Care to Move is encouraging people to come along with friends and family spanning as many generations as possible to support the good work of Alzheimer's Australia (Qld).
Kerry Cutting, General Manager - Community Relations, says that Alzheimer's Australia (Qld) is thrilled to be a part of this exciting event. 'Life does not stop with a diagnosis of dementia and, with the right support it is possible to keep living well. We applaud organisations such as Care to Move, who are breaking down the stigma associated with dementia that can often lead to social exclusion,' she said.
'Care to Move's fundraising efforts will go a long way to support local Queensland researchers in their journey to find a cure for the many different forms of dementia.'
