A SOUTH Yorkshire charity working to improve the lives of dementia sufferers has received a £200 cash boost.
Lost Chord was handed the cash by Jonathan Conroy, the South Yorkshire business executive for Swedish furniture company Kinnarps, who sponsored him to compete in a 10km race around Leeds.
Tina Harrison, fundraising manager at Lost Chord, said: “This was a truly fantastic effort by Jonathan and we are delighted that he wanted to support us in this way.
“It costs us more than £200,000 annually to maintain our programme of interactive musical events for people struggling with dementia in care homes and day centres across the region.
“Without the dedication and goodwill of people like Jonathan and the support of companies like Kinnarps, that work, which really does bring comfort to people at the most difficult time of their lives, would not be possible.”
