At Innovas we work with people of all cultures and ages as part of our delivering our services. Two groups stand out - the young and the old.
In many cases the young need support to realise their dreams; and for some the old need help to remember them...
Innovas supports and works with both of these groups through 2 voluntary organisations:
Thanks for the Memory aims to help those living with memory loss or dementia through the power of music.
It is a voluntary organisation established by Tim Ashcroft and his wife Renee, building on his musical background and as Musical Director of the Dave Egerton Band. The funds raised so far have bought music centres for two places and paid for artists to work with dementia patients.
It staged its first concert in May 2014 at Cranage Hall in Cheshire and has held 5 others since, including a variety show in November 2015. Its next concert is back in Cranage Hall on 15 May 2016.
Innovas hosts the organisation and provides support in promotion, ticketing, and managing the website & twitter; as well as staging the major events.

The Hive is a voluntary not for profit organisation based in Winsford in the heart of Cheshire providing opportunities for young people to become involved in the creative industries through the design, promotion, production of, and the performance at festivals and events.
Its major annual event, now in its sixth year, is the Fringe weekend festival held by the river over 3 days involving over 200 local performers and many voluntary groups.
Innovas hosts the organisation, provides administration support and helps in production and organisation of the events.
