The Meridian Singers in Louth sung to the tune of £1,578 which was raised from their recent concert in aid of the dementia group based at The Trinity Centre.

The ladies choir held their concert on May 6 at St James’s Church in Louth, which saw over 250 people attend.

Chair of The Meridian Singers, Christine Hayward was delighted with the response their concert received.

“We would just like to say a massive thank you to everyone who came along and supported our concert.

“The reaction we received was fantastic and to have raised over £1,500 for such a good cause like the Trinity Centre Dementia Group was the icing on the cake.”

Secretary Caroline Romaine said: “We had heard that the dementia group’s funding had been cut, so we knew that we needed to do something to help them out.”

Jayne Pegg, project administrator at the Trinity Centre who oversees the dementia group, said: “To receive such a big amount of money is absolutely amazing.

“With some of funding recently being cut, it will make a big difference.”

The dementia group started with just 12 members in July 2015, but now has over 100.

It is open to anyone with dementia, their carers, and any family members affected by it.

They meet every Wednesday from 2-4pm and new members are always welcome.
