National Dementia Carers Day
September 6, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 8:00 pm| £10
To celebrate National Dementia Carers Day, this year Carers Leeds have organised a trip for people living with dementia and their carers to come along together, to enjoy the seaside town of Morecambe.
We will be travelling on The Bentham Line, the dementia friendly railway. Crossing three rivers; Lune, Wenning and Ribble, whilst enjoying picturesque views of the Dales, Ingleborough and towards the Forest of Bowland.
On arrival we will enjoy an Afternoon Tea buffet, overlooking the bay from the 1930s Midland Hotel. In 1940, requisitioned to become the RAF Station hospital, stripped of its lavish interior. Today, Midland Hotel is a lovingly restored art deco masterpiece.
This will be followed by a stroll along the promenade to the Eric Morecambe statue (optional of course). There will then be some free time giving you all a chance to explore Morecambe at your leisure.
Taking place on Friday 06 September, meeting in Leeds train station at 9.30am and returning from Morecambe, arriving in Leeds at 7.40pm.
The trip is for people living with dementia and their carers to come along together and spaces are limited to 30. Booking is essential.

The cost for this trip is £10 per person, to be paid within a month of booking to secure your place.
