    THE STORY of the PURPLE ANGEL to be MADE INTO A DOCUMENTARY !!!

    This is the news i have been itching to tell you about for months!! The story of how the Purple Angel Campaign began and what we have achieved since is to be made into a Documentary. We have a director from Prague flying in and filming will start in March here in Torbay and then Beyond!! Please share this on every page you know, every TV station , every newspaper , every radio station, just EVERYBODY!! so we can show the world what a difference ordinary people like us can make when we all get together . So very exciting and a HUGE thank you to Laurence kelly!!!! XXXXXXXXXX

    FOOTNOTE ............
    The Directors showreeel at the end is to show the wonderful atmospheric films he has directed, they are not Dementia related,

    Seven years ago Norman McNamara, who lives in Torquay, was diagnosed with Dementia. Still in his 50s Norrms decided he couldn’t just sit there and do nothing.

    Seven years on, Normans’ quest to create more Dementia friendly communities is well under way. His Purple Angel campaign has literally gone global – with more than 300 Ambassadors helping to spread awareness across the UK and now the World.

    This very real life story, without dramatisation nor fiction, is to be told in an upcoming documentary. The project’s producer feels that “the work of the Purple Angels and Norman McNamara, deserves to be told,”. Laurence Kelly is keen to “show the variety of the work these volunteers engage in - running memory cafes, dementia drop in centres and making those in their area dementia aware plus so much more.”

    “We’re making this independently” says Director Will Thomas Freeman “your support will help us tell an inspiring story and showcase the incredible work of this man and all the good his organisation has done for others. We want to bring the topic of dementia to the main stage.”

    Norman McNamara has achieved so much, along with his army of volunteers, that fitting everything in is one of the biggest challenges! “It may turn into a series” jokes Kelly “as The Purple Angel is showing no signs of slowing down!”.

    “To help improve the lives of people you will probably never meet has to be the kindest act of all.” - Norrms McNamara

    Out of all the people who get medals and awards from our Queen, Norms is surely deserving of the top one going! How do we get a campaign under way, anyone any ideas?
