During 2023 we decided to fundraise for Essex Dementia Care, holding retiring collections at our concerts.

This charity is very dear to us as some of our members, friends and supporters have succumbed to this awful disease. Singing is one activity that supports people with dementia as it can unlock memories and reach parts of the brain which other forms of communication cannot. 

We are delighted to announce that £550 was raised for Essex Dementia Care and a cheque was presented to a representativefrom the charity last week. A huge thank you to everyone who donated at our concerts to this very worthy cause.

Essex Dementia Care was founded in 2006 and has helped countless people with dementia to maintain an active and social lifestyle. If you would like to know more about the work they do, please head over to their website:
