Edwinstowe’s Major Oak Pop Choir has been part of a special fundraising concert to raise funds this Dementia Action Week.

Dementia Friendly Mid Notts (covering Ashfield, Mansfield , Newark and Sherwood) joined forces with the local choir and well-known actor Vicky McClure’s ‘Our Dementia Choir’ for the virtual concert which raises money for and awareness of dementia.

The pandemic has been a real struggle for those living with dementia and their carers. It is hoped the funds raised will support much needed activities and therapy for people living with dementia and their carers.

Bafta-winning actor Vicky McClure helped to set up ‘Our Dementia Choir’ through the BBC series that recorded a deeply personal journey to discover the true extent of music’s power in the fight against dementia.
