A charity which supports people living with dementia was delighted to receive a big donation from a fundraising group.

Volunteers at Rutland Reminders were delighted to be given £700 by Rutland Lions.

The money is being put towards the production of two music CDs. The first CD will comprise a selection of general music while the second will have a collection of Christmas songs.

Rutland Reminders is a local group of dedicated volunteers, formed in 2010, for people with dementia and their carers. The group meets monthly to sing old, well-loved songs.

Members of Rutland Lions were delighted to be able to support the group. Anyone interested in joining Rutland Reminders, as a carer, guest or volunteer, should contact Diana Ellard on 07779 413889.

A new pin badge, kindly donated by Oakham mayor Adam Lowe, is available from Victoria Hall in High Street, for a suggested donation of £2.

To make a donation to the group, send a cheque, made out to Rutland Reminders to 12 St Albans Close, Oakham, Rutland, LE15 6EW.
