Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.Thank you soooo much for your support....
It’s been a vocal challenge - songs that I would never have thought of singing live let alone recording 😁.... it’s a genuine sound though no fuss ....just total genius thanks to the generous time given by the wonderfully talented Carl Simmonds of Pinewood Audio-“Mr Caro”😜
They are the songs mum loved and she would sing along to  them while she washed up after cooking a delish Sunday roast !!! My happy memories of a 1970’s childhood,  almost idyllic until devoured by this awful disease - she was still only in her 40s ... life was never to be the same again 😞
You may have your own experiences of this disease which strips our loved ones of identity, dignity and life, leaving us a shell to grieve while sat with them in the same room 😐 💔

However as a positive to mum’s  memory I have recorded and called this Album:

“ Mum’s Washing Up Songs”

As they are just that!!! 🎶🎵

Appealing to so many especially her generation.

Music brings the soul to life even when the mind is struggling.

Amazingly I have seen this life return briefly to the eyes of many Alzheimer’s sufferers when songs begin and somehow many try and do sing along not having uttered a cohesive word in months .... And that’s what I’m hoping music will continue to do ....

“Alzheimer’s  Research UK” is the country’s leading dementia research charity. I really want a treatment for dementia to be found, and so do they. Thats why I’ve chosen to support them and their brilliant scientists. Every pound you’re able to donate, will help find the next big research breakthrough. That means we can find life-changing treatments for dementia together #TeamARUK.
Without research and development more golden film rolls will be played through silent eyes - I do hope they aren’t yours and mine 💜

As for this album 🎵- Thank you all so much - and thank you to and from my Mum Pat Lawrence 1931-1985

Enjoy !! 👍
