Kate Woolveridge B.Mus, LRAM, Dip Ram.
Kate was awarded the 2102 inspirational woman of the year for her work with the forget me not chorus.
The Forget–me–Not Chorus is a Cardiff based charity which support carers and people with dementia through weekly singing sessions. Each week the forty strong choir meet to sing, rehearse and have fun. The charity was set up by Kate and her colleague, Sarah Teagle.
The Forget–me–Not Chorus aims toempower both dementia clients and carers to use their voice in song to express themselves and to use the power of music to provide an escape from the everyday caring routine – providing a sense of normality, giving families a positive experience of being together. Each project is designed to take the participants on a journey together with the person they love, showing that a good quality of life can be achieved together, despite dementia, and then through an end of project performance sharing this with their wider friends and family.
“It is fantastic therapy for people with dementia and a happy relief for carers. It is perfect, no pressure just fun, everyone playing a part to the best of their ability. For us Monday evening is our happiness fix.” Choir Member
