PATRONS OF LOST CHORD DEMENTIA CHARITY

Sir Cliff joins International Soprano Lesley Garrett CBE in supporting us with their patronage.
Sir Cliff Richard

Patron – Sir Cliff

In the year of our 10th anniversary, we are delighted Sir Cliff Richard OBE has agreed to be one of our National Patrons. His mother suffered with dementia and he knows what an important part music can play in improving the quality of life for people with dementia.

“I am happy to lend my name to your invaluable work because I am aware of the positive effect of music on those with dementia”

Lesley Garrett CBE

Patron – Lesley Garrett CBE

Lesley Garrett CBE, the world famous soprano, became our first National Patron. Lesley originally came from Doncaster and obviously feels a certain allegiance to this area. We asked her to comment on her reasons for supporting Lost Chord.

“I had a dear aunt with dementia, a resident at a home in South Yorkshire. She didn’t recognise any of us by sight towards the end, but when my mother played one of my CD’s her face always lit up and she would say ‘Lesley.’ I do admire the work you do, especially as you are helping young musicians as well as people with dementia.”
