On 1st December, the Zemel Choir will be giving a Charity Concert to support Barnet Alzheimer’s in the provision of Dementia Cafes in the London Borough of Barnet. In addition to an upbeat and varied repertoire from the Zemel Choir, there will be Kosher Food and drinks as well as a magician. As the Prime Minister said in a recent speech “the truth is that dementia now stands alongside cancer as one of the greatest enemies of humanity.”
With over 800,000 diagnosed with this cruel illness, Dementia Café’s such as the Finchley Memorial Hospital Dementia Café, provide a most valuable support to those families affected. Originally funded by charitable donations raised by Councillor Lisa Rutter when she was Mayor of Barnet in 2011 to 2012, she has continued her charitable work by running the Dementia Café for the last year in the most commendable way. Indeed, she is a shining example of how a local politician is helping to engage with dementia sufferers and their carers by making a real difference in the community. To support Barnet Alzheimer’s and the provision of Dementia Cafes, the Zemel Choir is proud to provide its services for such a worthy cause.
