Arthur Musical Bear – I’ve arrived!

Written by David Maxwell on . Posted in Care Homes, Dementia, Health & Wellbeing, Latest News, Music, Products, Research

Hello, Arthur here, remember me from the website post back in June?, I’m the musical bear designed specially for people with dementia, I think I would also be really good at bringing comfort to lots of people.

I’ve just arrived at Pink Rooster HQ and before I do anything else I plan to do my bit and remember all of those that have sacrificed their lives, minds and bodies in conflicts throughout the world for the benefit of others, and wear my poppy with pride.

Keep an eye on Pink Rooster’s web site and facebook page for updates on what I am up to, and details of dsc_2168a_pr_logo_poppy_awhen and where you can buy me.. I’m thinking of having my own facebook page too, so will keep you posted.

Best wishes
Arthur
