If you enjoy a good sing song, and can spare 2 hours nine times a year please come and help us! We provide therapy through singing for people living with dementia. We are a happy bunch, and do what we can to give pleasure and musical stimulation. We need a few more helpers, not necessarily singers, at our Oakham gatherings, which take place at the Rutland Care Village. This is not a big commitment – just a very helpful one – so please ring on the Rutland Reminders number – 07779 413889
