Classical music brings in cash for Lost Chord

Have your say

THE annual Lost Chord summer concert has raised £2,800 for the organisation that provides musical experiences for people with dementia.

The event, now in its 13th year, was held once again at All Saints Church, Laughton-en-le-Morthen, and special guest musicians included last year’s BBC Chorister of the Year Ella Taylor.

Special guests for the evening included the Lord Lieutenant of South Yorkshire David Moody, his wife Sue, the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Sheffield, and the Mayor and Mayoress of Rotherham.

The evening also saw former Sheffield Soroptimists president Ann Hawkes present a cheque for £2,500, the result of her year of fundraising for Lost Chord.

“This was a wonderful evening, hailed by everyone as the best one yet,” said Lost Chord chief executive Helena Muller. “It was also extremely important for our continued success.

“To receive £5,300 in just one evening, thanks to the generosity of so many, means so much, helping to continue our events at care homes and day centres across the region.”
