Make sure you have your phone with you next time you go for a walk, to record a short video for Voluntary Norfolk’s new Memory Walks project. This is a new project initiated by Voluntary Norfolk’s NCH&C Volunteer Team and which will shortly be launched on the Voluntary Norfolk YouTube channel.
Alana Farrow, of the NCH&C team explains more: “The Memory Walks project will be a playlist of short video clips which will be promoted to patients and displayed on big screens on Norfolk Community Health & Care wards. The playlist will be designed to encourage patients to remember local experiences and places and provide a window to the outside world. We are keen to capture sights and memories from across the county, perhaps significant local history sites like the cathedral, or a local park or even the bird feeder at the bottom of your garden. Let’s cheer patients and staff up with some new things to look at!”
How to take part in the Memory Walk project:
- We are looking for short videos, between 30 seconds and 2 minutes long.
- Videos can be filmed on smartphones or a bike camera, whatever you have.
- All videos should be anonymous. By this we mean that no individual should be identifiable, this includes you. Do not film your home address, any children; car registrations etc. This is to safeguard all involved.
- Please ensure you are abiding by current Covid-19 guidelines in your area.
Once you have recorded your video the next step is to send it to us. The easiest way to do this is using a free service called WeTransfer. We Transfer is easy to use and you don’t need to create an account; just upload your file, and when prompted send the file to email@example.com. Add your email address and a short message with your name, location of the video and date the video was recorded. We can’t wait to see your ‘Memory Walks’!
