Volunteers working with film stills, clips and portraits of stars hope to encourage people with or affected by dementia talk about memories and emotions connected with cinema.

Screen Memories Scotland is a film initiative, at Campbeltown Picture House next Wednesday at 11.30am.

The free event is organised in partnership with Alzheimer Scotland. and Regional Screen Scotland, funded by the Life Changes Trust, with refreshments provided by Fyne Homes.

It focuses on stimulating and retrieving memories. At the heart of the programme is work by trained volunteers.

It runs for about 50 minutes, but is designed so people can dip in and out in very relaxed and informal atmosphere.

Although aimed at people affected by dementia, everyone is welcome to participate and carers/friends/family members are very welcome.  There is no need to book.
