MINDSONG is a charity in Gloucestershire that brings Music therapy to people suffering with dementia. It began as a small project, which over the years has grown hugely. Until recently, it has been working in Care Homes for people often with advanced dementia, and is now branching out into working in peoples' homes. To find out more, please visit the website. I'll be doing a concert in aid of this charity on the 7th October.
