Councillor Colin Spence, the Chairman of Suffolk County Council is organising a concert in order to raise much needed funds for two Charities that operate in Suffolk.
The Chairman’s Charities are Lost Chord and Fresh Start - New Beginnings:
Lost Chord is dedicated to improving the quality of life and wellbeing of people living with dementia using interactive musical stimuli to increase their general awareness and self-esteem. They work with some of the top musicians in the country and arrange for them to deliver interactive sessions in care homes. Their work has had a massive impact on the individuals who have attended the concerts and their families.
Fresh Start – New Beginnings was set up to provide a therapeutic service for children and young people up to 18 years who have reported being sexually abused and to offer support for their families. Their aim is to help children and young people make sense of the confusion they feel and to teach them coping strategies to deal with the difficulties they face. They highlight their strengths and potential so that they are able to move from victim to survivor.
The concert has a host of musicians and singers performing classical pieces, jazz, folk, rock and pop. The musicians are all linked with Suffolk County Council and there will be special guest performances from some of the Lost Chord musicians.
This promises to be a fun, entertaining and enjoyable evening. Please come along and support the local talent as well as raising funds for these incredible charities.
We are requesting a donation on the door (suggested donation is £10 per person)
