The Saxon Day Centre caters for many elderly clients in the Orpington and adjacent areas.  Whilst providing much in the way of indoor social activities (including lunches), the centre lacked a suitable screen to provide audio and visual stimulation for the clients, many of whom suffer from Dementia or Alzheimers. Research has shown that films/tv can prove invaluable in providing stimulation for reminiscence in patients. The Orpington Rotary Club therefore setup a project to provide the much needed facility. A District grant was successfully applied for and financial help was given by Orpington Crofton Rotary Club & other organisations
