The purpose of the campaign is to see the Purple Angel logo, adopted as the worldwide symbol for dementia awareness. Enabling those living with dementia and their families, to feel confident when seeing the symbol displayed in any shop, business or organization, that they are dementia aware.

This unique dementia awareness campaign was started as a result of one man’s vision, Norman (affectionately known as Norrms) McNamara, who was diagnosed with dementia in his early 50s.

A documentary is currently being shot about this incredible story;

“The film is being made in memory and recognition of all those who’ve lived and are living with dementia” says Producer, Laurence Kelly, “it will be the first time a documentary will show a dementia initiative across such a global scale.

By filming in the United States, we will be able to see how the work of all the Purple Angel Ambassadors has impacted on the success of the campaign”

The USA side of the story will also highlighting the work of Purple Angel Ambassador Gary La Blanc who amongst other achievements persuaded a major USA hospital to adopt the logo and Purple Angel ethos and Lori La Bey who through her blog, radio and website following has used the power of the written and spoken word to gather support.

This footage and more will highlight the positive effect of what has been achieved both sides of the pond.

Norman McNamara creator of the campaign said “Please share this campaign and the link.  if I can do this living with dementia, imagine just how much we can do together!”

You can view the trailer through the link above; you can pledge your support and in return add your loved ones name to the memory wall in the credits list.

“Perhaps Britain’s greatest export at the moment are our community values” says Kelly, “you can be part of the team making this happen – showing how these values have crossed the Oceans and this is surely just the beginning”

As an Individual, community or business you can get involved today.

TO BE MADE INTO A DOCUMENTARY Large Purple white background Angel for drop box“WE NEED YOUR HELP PLEASE”

Norrms McNamara says.

Norrms I have dementia but dementia doesnt have me

Here Is What Norrms

Wants You To Know

This is the news I have been itching to tell you about for months!! The story of how the Purple Angel Campaign (this is the original and official UK site) 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!!

Click Here to get to the Official Purple Angel Campaign for the US

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 of Ostrich Care !!!!

If you or anybody you know / business`s etc can make a small donation towards the kick starter project it will be very welcomed. 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 dramatization 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.”

You Can Support This Project

Go To Kickstarter

“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 organization has done for others. We want to bring the topic of dementia to the main stage.”

You can receive rewards for your pledges on Kickstarter, “the more funds we raise, allows us to film more content, more people, more stories.” says Freeman ” please, help us to achieve this.”

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
