Omega celebrate 10th anniversary by holding music night in Shrewsbury
Popular BBC Radio Shropshire Breakfast presenter Clare Ashford will host TEN ƱP: A 10th Anniversary Musical Celebration Event for Omega care for life and the night’s headline act is Henry Maybury https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-mNkk8J1fg (with over 1m views)
Shrewsbury-based end of life charity Omega will stage the event at the Priory School, Longden Road, Shrewsbury, SY3 9EE at 7:00pm on Saturday 3rd March 2018.
Omega care for life (Omega, the National Association for End of Life Care) is an end of life charity; Registered Charity No.1120322, Registered Company No.6196052. Omega provides befriending and bereavement support and works with caring families looking after people suffering from long-term or life-limiting conditions and socially isolated individuals. Omega encourages self-help and peer support, delivers community learning activity and facilitated group sessions and hosts lively outreach and information sharing events. Omega also maintains contact with family care-givers and former carers through the Omega Network, comprising dynamic groups which allow unpaid family carers to meet informally. Omega works collaboratively with a range of delivery partners including successful businesses, Third Sector not-for-profit groups, local authorities and organisations within the NHS. Omega works with patients suffering from motor neurone disease, and their families, across the country to share information and develop innovative, high impact, non-clinical, easily-affordable support. The charity is also the home of the Chatterbox Action against Loneliness and Crisis Support Programme. For further information about Omega’s work, please contact Development Director Tom Memery; email firstname.lastname@example.org.
TEN ƱP was inspired by Henry and Sally Maybury of Lost Days. Like many other Omega supporters, they are amazing people who have faced a traumatic loss and yet have worked tirelessly to tell the story of their family tragedy in the hope of helping others.
Henry Maybury ( www.youtube.com/user/henrymaybury), will be our headline act, joined by Shrewsbury Handbells, who have chosen Omega as their charity of the year, along with concert band Second Wind, soloist Ruth Lewis and popular entertainer Brian T Williams.
Omega Chairperson and local GP Dr Teresa Griffin thanked Henry and his mother Sally, Lanyon Bowdler Solicitors, who have kindly agreed to support Omega’s 10th anniversary celebrations, and everyone else involved in staging the TEN ƱP event;
“The people we serve care for someone with a life-limiting illness or have suffered bereavement. They often find it difficult to find the help they need. Our multi award-winning Chatterbox and local motor neurone family support programmes can intervene quickly and complement the work of busy health professionals. We increasingly rely upon generous public donations, community fundraising and talented volunteers, including remarkable people like our Patrons Rose Davies and Henry Heath MBE, who have each made a huge contribution to serving the local community on behalf of Omega and other good causes. If you would like to support our important work please get in touch.”
Our musical friends and colleagues are delighted to have this opportunity to get involved with TEN ƱP to raise awareness of Omega’s important work. We shall be asking the BBC Radio Shropshire Breakfast Show Team for a birthday fanfare in the run-up to the concert.
