“It was an amazingly uplifting concert with a wonderful variety of music – including traditional pieces such as Land of Hope and Glory and some more modern favourites from shows such as The Greatest Showman and Les Miserables,” says Katie. “None of it could have happened without the dedication and hard work of Christine Parker, who does so much for the dementia community here in West Kent.”
The concert took place at St Peter’s & St Paul’s Church in Tonbridge and featured the Royal Tunbridge Wells Orpheus Male Voice Choir and Tonbridge Community Singers.
CooperBurnett was the first business in Tunbridge Wells to officially be named as ‘dementia friendly’ and now, as a Dementia Friends Champion, Katie is sharing her knowledge with many businesses and organisations locally. Dementia Friends is a national initiative from Alzheimer’s Society that aims to change the way we think, act and talk about dementia.
