Jason Donovan to join Our Dementia Choir at John Fretwell Sporting Complex

Posted onPosted on 30th Nov

Famous actor and singer Jason Donovan is the special guest at Our Dementia Choir’s annual fundraising concert at the John Fretwell Complex, Sookholme, on Sunday.

The sold-out night will include entertainment from the choir, Jason and the Blue John Soul Band.

Our Dementia Choir was formed in 2018 by BBC1, who aired a two-part documentary where award-winning actress Vicky McClure embarked on a personal quest to explore the therapeutic potential of music in fighting dementia.

As part of the documentary, the Dementia Choir was formed. The choir had such a profound impact that it continued to meet even after the show’s conclusion.

Eventually, it became a registered charity under the leadership of Karen Bonser – wife of choir member Mick Bonser – and continues to go from strength to strength.
