POCKLINGTON Arts Centre (PAC) is launching brand new Singing with Dementia sessions to help those affected by the condition.

Singing with Dementia sessions will take place at PAC on Monday, September 23 and 30, and October, 7 and 14, from 1pm to 3pm.

Sam Dunkley, musical director of PAC’s Forgotten Voices Choir, will lead the group through a familiar repertoire of songs that are sure to unlock treasured memories.

The sessions have been endorsed by Dementia Friendly East Riding, a charity working to support all those affected by the disease

With support from the Friends of PAC each session will cost £5 per person, with one carer per person with dementia going free. Free tea and coffee will be included.

Places are limited so advance booking is recommended. visit www.pocklingtonartscentre.co.uk or call 01759 301547.
