    New Free Memory Box Launched

    We've just launched our fourth free Memory Box! Our Memory Boxes are perfect for reminiscence therapy with older people and people with dementia.

    Our new box contains replica food packaging from the 1950s to the 1980s, as well as photographs and adverts of food at M&S through the years.

    Our Memory Boxes are free to borrow and can be booked by care homes and memory cafes for a maximum of two weeks. Boxes include 'What We Wore', 'Childhood', 'Days and Nights Out' and the new 'What We Ate'.

    Contact us on 0208 718 2800 or company.archive@marksandspencer.com for more information.
