Staffordshire Dementia charity aims to create an accessible, dementia friendly garden at a school in Leek

Approach Dementia Support has today launched a new crowdfunding campaign, to raise money to install a dementia friendly garden at a school in Leek.

The grassy plot at St Edward’s Middle School could house a number of raised beds, as well as a shed and seating.

The garden would be opened once a week for people in Leek who are affected by dementia, so they can continue to do the activities that they love.

It’s also an intergenerational project, as pupils from the school will be working on the garden as well.

Fruits and vegetables will be planted, which will then be given to local food banks to help the community.


How VideoHQ has supported Approach’s crowdfunding campaign



This is the latest Crowdfunding campaign that VideoHQ has produced the campaign video for, as well as a number of social media clips to generate interest within the campaign’s duration.

We interviewed a number of people involved in the project: from members of staff; teachers; pupils; as well as local people affected by dementia.

These interviews have been weaved together to create a strong narrative, where every perspective of why the project would be a good thing has been included.

A video where you hear directly from the people impacted by the project is so much more effective than just words on the screen.
