Vital boost to Rotherham charity
Date: 28/04/2012. Story submitted by: Lynn Hall
A Treeton woman who loved to sing has left a £500 legacy - to a charity that encourages just that!
Ethel Cope recently died aged 85. Ethel, who had dementia, enjoyed regular visits to Dinnington’s Davis Court Dementia Café where she enjoyed the interactive sessions provided by South Yorkshire dementia charity Lost Chord. Now her family and friends have handed over £500 to Lost Chord to enable them to carry on with their vital community work.
“This donation, which means so much to us, really is Ethel’s legacy and represents the wish of her family to help others,” said Lost Chord Chief Executive Helena Muller. “It is contributions like this that mean we will be able to continue to provide Lost Chord’s services at the Davis Court Dementia Café.
“Ethel’s daughter Jill says her mum would be absolutely over the moon to know that her legacy will help others to enjoy music and the work of Lost Chord, which meant so much to her."
She said that it is their way of expressing the whole family’s gratitude for all the support they received from both the Alzheimer’s Society and Lost Chord.
