Total Recall Memories Choir

(Angus)

This a project to help people with Alzheimer’s and Dementia to communicate through music. It has been running for 3 years under the umbrella of Alzheimer Scotland but unfortunately due to funding restrictions on charities as a whole we have had to go independent. This choir supports people with these diseases, their carers, family and friends.

Our goals:

  • To keep the choir going and benefit more people as we are receiving new referrals every week.
  • To make a CD and give the choir a higher profile. This is very important to the choir as this would also help to raise money and lift the moral of the participants.
  • To open up the opportunity for more people to enjoy our weekly musical sessions.

How we will achieve our goals

It is difficult to raise enough money to pay a Musical Director and pay hall lets. We would absolutely love to make a CD, which would help to keep the choir going, as we have a concert twice a year. The benefit to people suffering with these diseases is really amazing as they can communicate so well through music.

Where the money will go

In our community there is an increasing amount of people with Alzheimer’s and Dementia who would benefit from this funding.

    I have the pleasure and privilege of being part of this Choir. To see husbands and wives, mothers and daughters, partners of those who have now passed on as a result of their illness being able to be part of something quite ordinary and having such a lot of fun is amazing. We do raise funds ourselves, through concerts and various fundraising ideas but this would just make it easier on those who already carry the burden of caring.
