Next event: X-MAS BOAT PARTY
Halloween Boatparty in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society
On the 28th of October students celebrated Halloween on the beloved Teesside Princess with the motto ‘’ Drink, Dance and Be Scary’’. There was a DJ, scary decorations and some great dancing going on. Also a fancy dress competition was held. All donations were given to the Alzheimer Society. Most of us in the DUCK QC team this year study Applied Psychology and therefore, learn a lot about mental disorders. It was important for us to not only know about these disorders, but to help and take action. Some of us have personally experiences with the struggles of dementia and know how difficult it is for the person experiencing it and his/her loved ones around. I personally volunteered in a residential home and know that it can be quite frustrating to repeat the same conversation every single time. I cannot image how the person must feel who suffer from dementia: so scared not knowing who they are, not recognizing the same kitchen they have cooked in their entire life, losing their identity. Therefore, we choose Alzheimer Society to fund research and help the local community. We stand united against Dementia. In total this event raised £97.05 which was donated to the Alzheimer’s Society. Thank you so much for everyone who donated! Christmas boat party: Our next boat party will be held on the 10th of December again on the Teesside Princess
