Charity Fundraiser // Words, Music, Glee & Delight #NormanbyHall

Tuesday 19th Sept, Ian McMillan is returning to North Lincs to host a special concert at Normanby Hall.

You are invited to join poet, playwright and broadcaster, Ian McMillan, on Tuesday 19 September at Normanby Hall Country Park for a charity fundraising event in aid of the North Lincolnshire Children’s Literacy Trust.

Ian will be joined by Olympic composer, Luke Carver Goss, to present a hilarious night of words, music and improvisation. The event will be held in the stunning Normanby Hall Regency Room and starts at 7pm. 


Tickets cost £15 each (booking fee may apply) and proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to supporting the work of the North Lincolnshire Children’s Literacy Trust. The charity helps local families discover the joys and benefits of reading.


Ian, known as ‘the bard of Barnsley’ for his distinctive Yorkshire accent, hosts BBC Radio 3 show The Verb and is a regular on BBC Breakfast and Countryfile. He is a familiar figure to audiences in North Lincolnshire as a former poet-in-residence with Humberside Police. Ian also contributed the words to the acclaimed opera ‘Cycle Song’, the celebration of Scunthorpe steelworker turned Olympic cyclist, Albert ‘Lal’ White.


Tickets for the event are available directly from Normanby Hall by calling 01724 720588 or online.

Events // National Dementia Awareness Week

NHS North Lincolnshire CCG is supporting national Dementia Awareness Week taking place from 17 to 23 May 2015. Events and activities are taking place across North Lincolnshire throughout the week with the aim of raising awareness of dementia and highlighting the local support on offer to those living with the condition and their families and carers.

The theme of Dementia Awareness Week this year is ‘Life doesn’t end when dementia begins’. This is certainly true in North Lincolnshire, as I hope you will see by the wide range of things going on during the week listed in this bulletin. Many of these are tasters of regular occurring events by established dementia support groups and venues. Have a chat with staff at any of the events to find out more about what goes on throughout the year to support people living with dementia.You can also find out more on the Alzheimer’s Society web site here and also on the North Lincolnshire Council web site here.

Please also visit the CCG’s dedicated web pages for further information about local dementia support, resources and activities. All of the Dementia Awareness Week events detailed in this bulletin can also be found on our website

Finally, we would be grateful if you would help us in our efforts to raise awareness of this important week by sharing this e-flyer with you family, friends and networks. Thank you for your support.
