Last year’s sell-out concert Music from Movies & Musicals in St Ives by the amazing Huntingdonshire Concert Band resulted in a huge cheque from the band presented to the Dementia Friendly Community group recently. A staggering £1,636 was raised by HCB on the night to which the group added £465 from the raffle!
Chair of the group, Ian Jackson, said, ‘The evening was a triumph and I am so grateful to the band, the audience, the raffle sponsors and my volunteer Dementia Friends for making it possible. This money will help us expand our activities within our Dementia Friendly Community. ’
