West End Star Dave Willetts launches new CD

22 May 2018

After a chance meeting with Coventry City of Culture Trust’s Fundraising Manager Michael Mogan, West End Star Dave Willetts shared details of his work which benefits those people living with dementia. Dave runs the Coventry “singing for the brain” which is a nationwide service provided by the Alzheimer’s Society, of which Coventry’s is the best attended in the country.

After attending a session, Michael became incredibly moved and impressed and expressed his wish to become involved in any way he could. Dave told him of his idea to produce an album, inspired by the “singing for the brain” sessions which would prolong the enjoyment that those who attended, obviously benefited from, either at home, in the car or on holiday etc.

The idea of the album finally came to fruition after a good friend of Dave’s, Ian Dunwoody, offered to fund the cost of the CD in memory of his cousin George who sadly lost his battle with dementia.

The CD is now selling fast, with every penny going in to the DAVE WILLETTS FOUNDATION, which benefits those who are living with dementia.

We have three signed CDs to give away to those who share and comment on our facebook post with their favourite song (competition ends midnight 28 May).

You can also purchase the CD from www.davewilletts.com click on the Foundation link and follow instructions to help this super cause.

This competition is being run as part of Alzheimer Society’s Dementia Action Week. Small actions can have a big impact for people with dementia. During #DAW2018 this week they’re asking people to take action. What actions have helped you or someone you know? Use #DAW2018 on twitter and have your say.
