“We are so impressed with the contribution Mel Larsen has made to Memory Marathon. She more than met her brief – finding 104 fantastic people to take part in the final film, whilst her delivery of the accompanying workshops and events has been invaluable to the project overall. We’re sure Mel and Anna’s creative approach, unwavering dedication and positivity has been key to the sense of involvement, pride and excitement that all the participants have shown towards the project”
