Looking for a pianist, or other instrumentalists to aid our singers!

Arts / Entertainment volunteer needed for Grange Memory Cafe in RG30

The Grange Memory Cafe aims to provide a safe space where those suffering from or caring for those living with dementia and related impairment can meet for mutual support and social activities.

We would like a pianist or other instrumentalist to lead the singing and possibly accompany exercise to music at the Memory Cafe.

We would be very happy for the volunteer to assist with other occupations as well, such as games, quizzes, conversation etc, but if they can only join us for a limited part of the morning for the musical part, that would be ok too.
