Rhythmix

We believe in the power of music to change lives

Story

Last year my father was diagnosed with dementia. He is still an amazing man but his life has been changed irrecoverably. My mother cares for him despite being in her 80's herself and is an incredible woman. I cannot change the way things are but I wanted to find a way to make a difference. This is an illness that touches so many lives.

Just before Christmas I saw a film about how Wishing Well for Music brings music to dementia sufferers in hospitals. This resonated with me and my children's love of music and I had the idea to put on a gig at my much loved local venue: Tunbridge Wells Forum. I really hope you will be able to book tickets (available via the Facebook event page) and come to the gig but if not please donate here.
