Alzheimers Lincoln is a group of volunteers collectively raising money for the Alzheimers society here in Lincoln. Tomorrow, they are set to hold a fundraiser gig to continue their excellent work in the field over recent months, dating back to February when they provided ‘Dementia Friend’ training, and did a charity Harry Potter quiz.
On November 4th, the group will present ‘Carry the Crown’ along with a collection of other bands, live at The Platform in Lincoln SU building in an effort to fundraise more money to help Alzheimers.
Laura Taylor, leader of Alzheimers Lincoln excitedly said “I can’t wait for Forget Me Rocks, it will be a culmination of a lot of hard work from the volunteers, venue and band, its set to be an amazing night!”.
Meanwhile, headline act, Carry the Crown seemed more than ready for the gig.
“We are incredibly proud to be headlining the ‘Forget me rocks’ event. The night is supporting such an important cause that is close to a lot of people’s hearts.”
The night is all set to be a big success and hopefully allow the Alzheimers society to contribute significant funds towards tackling alzheimers.
John McKay, a volunteer for the group said the night was more than just a fundraiser.
“I’m really excited for Forget Me Rocks because not only is it for a great cause, it’s also a brilliant opportunity to showcase local music.”
The event takes place at 7pm until 10.30pm in the Platform, tickets from SU reception, See Tickets or the Engine Shed Website for £4 each. Tickets on the door are £5 and all money raised goes towards the Alzheimers society.Tweet
