Remembrance Day Project Raises Funds For Alzheimer’s Society

Teresa Scannella and Chris Grace of the Remember Poppy Day project present a cheque for £400 to Joy Valcarcel of the Woking Alzheimer’s Society at the Bradbury Centre, Lavender Road, Woking, Surrey.
The money was raised during a night of superb music to an audience of 150 by Olly Wedgwood and his band and Sam Wedgwood at Red Bar & Restaurant Weybridge on Remembrance Day. The evening included a performance of the ‘Remember Poppy Day’ single by Olly Wedgwood, which Chris Grace co-wrote with him.
Chris told us “Olly’s performance on the single is world class, and through recommendations the video on YouTube was viewed by over 1,600 people in a few weeks. Teresa Scannella is the artist for the project and she has supported The Alzheimer’s Society over a number of years by selling her art, so we were very happy to agree to her request to help this worthy charity.”
A raffle was held, the prizes were a limited edition print of Teresa’s painting, Frank’s Wood - Leith Hill, and a £50 voucher from her place of work, The Body and Beauty Studio, Woking. £350 was raised on the night and this was increased to £400 by donations from Teresa’s clients. Woking Alzheimer's Society cheque presentation
Teresa’s mother passed away on 9th May this year after suffering with Alzheimer’s for over 20 years. Her picture of Pyrford Poppies has previously raised several hundred pounds for the Alzheimer’s Society so it was particularly poignant to her that her Poppy picture was used for the Remember Poppy Day project where 50% of profits from art sales from the website www.remember-poppy-day.com will go to the Alzheimer’s Society.
The single also helped to raise money for the Poppy Appeal..
The Remember Poppy Day team would like to thank everyone who made a donation via the www.remember-poppy-day.com  website. Further donations can continue to be made.
Teresa’s paintings can be viewed on www.surreyartists.co.uk  .For limited edition prints contact Teresa direct on 07896 255 017 or by email teresa@surreyartists.co.uk .

“I looked at the website and after listening to the song and seeing the photos I was filled with such emotion that I am still crying now as I write this email.
You have done an incredible job putting this together and I really do feel privileged to be part of it. I wish everyone huge success.”
