SINGING FOR DEMENTIA WEEK

Friday 13th May

A group from Wessex Choir spent the afternoon at Tricuro's Moordown Plus, a day centre for those with Dementia, in Moordown Bournemouth. 

As part of Dementia action week, we at the choir spent time at the centre and sang. The clients loved listening, dancing and singing to music, and really enjoyed it.The smiles were intoxicating, as were the tears and sounds of laughter. Dementia week started on Monday 13th May and we arrived at lunch time on Friday 17th May at 1pm and spent the afternoon singing for Joy!

We hope that this will be the start of a lovely singing relationship to give hope and see the clients and the choir thoroughly enjoying themselves.

We were also able to give a little more on the day by presenting a cheque for £200 for all the great work and from monies raised at our Christmas Concerts in 2023.
