On Friday 10 September 2021, the annual Forever Young festival took place at Charlton House and Greenwich Carers Centre and Grant Saw were delighted to be in attendance as a sponsor.
Forever Young was funded by Royal Greenwich Festivals and is an annual event that celebrates the cultural vibrancy of Royal Greenwich with entertainment that included theatre, music, dance, family performances and live displays. The festivals programme is funded by the Royal Borough of Greenwich. Approximately 900 people were in attendance on the day.
The event is organised by the Greenwich Carers Centre and the objective is to bring carers, vulnerable people, and community groups from across the borough together in the spirit of recognition, celebration and entertainment. The festival has a social mission to raise awareness of social isolation, carers, and vulnerable people. The event actively connects people with a range of community activities and voluntary sector services that reduce isolation and loneliness.
Kalpa Prajapati, Partner at Grant Saw, said “We were delighted to sponsor the Forever Young event last Friday and have the opportunity to attend to give free advice to attendees on Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney. A huge well done to Mark, Kellie, Sonia and the team at Greenwich Carers Centre for putting on a very entertaining and enjoyable day. We are proud of our work in the local community and were honoured to support an event that actively helps vulnerable people”.
Stu Tattersall, CEO of Greenwich Carers Centre, said “Forever Young is an important event with a clear mission to raise awareness of carers and reduce social isolation. The success of this year’s event clearly demonstrates the impact of a successful partnership approach. Thank you to Grant Saw for sponsoring the event and thank you to our voluntary sector partners for helping us to make the event such a high-profile success”.
