The Angel of Passchendaele
Jordans Solicitors are proudly sponsoring the premier of the Film “The Angel of Passchendaele” which has been produced by Just Druid in conjunction with Wakefield Civic Society. The premier will be held at the Theatre Royal Wakefield on Tuesday 3rd July 2018.
The film was produced following huge interest after a blue plaque was unveiled to commemorate Nellie Spindler. Ms Spindler was a nurse during the First World War and was born in Wakefield. Ms Spindler joined the Queen Alexandra’s Imperial Military Nursing Service and was transferred from France to Belgium in July 1917. Working at No 44 Casualty Clearing Station she helped treat seriously injured soldiers within the range of German shells at the battle of Passchendaele.
Unfortunately Ms Spindler died aged 26 in a blast three miles from the frontline near Ypres in 1917. She was buried with full military honours and is the only woman buried in Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery, among 10,000 men. The civic society’s plaque is on the site of her former Stanley Road home.
We have been a participant in the Wakefield Artwalk since its inception welcoming a range of artists to display their artwork in our Wakefield office. The Wakefield Artwalk takes place every two months on the last Wednesday of the month. We showcase the artwork between 5pm – 8pm and feature a different artist on each event. Our doors are open for anyone to view the artwork and further information about the Wakefield Artwalk can be found here.
This year is also the 10th anniversary of the event.
We are currently in the process of becoming a dementia friendly firm and are working with Dementia Champions to train as many members of our staff into Dementia Friends.
Our Horsforth office supports the Dementia Friendly Community scheme run by Horsforth Town Council which aims to raise awareness of the condition and provide support to people living with dementia in Horsforth.
A dementia-friendly community is a city, town or village where people with dementia are understood, respected and supported and confident they can contribute to community life.
