SOUTH Yorkshire singing legend Tony Christie is helping dementia charity Lost Chord to celebrate its 20th anniversary with a special concert at Doncaster’s Keepmoat Stadium.
The Conisbrough-born chart topper – still best known for hit single Amarillo – will take to the stage on Saturday, September 28 for this special performance on behalf of the charity that provides vital interactive musical experiences for people living with dementia in care homes and day centres both across the region and nationally.
The concert will also feature support by Lost Chord musicians – singer/guitarist Donal Rogers and singers Sally Glennon and Russ Elliott.
“Following the success of our 20th anniversary evening with our patrons nSir Cliff Richard and Lesley Garrett in London, this fantastic new event brings our 20th anniversary celebrations right back to the heart of the Lost Chord community in South Yorkshire, because this is where it all started 20 years ago,” said Chief Executive Helena Muller.
“We are delighted that Tony Christie has agreed to headline this very special evening, which will be raising funds to ensure that our programme of events for people living with dementia throughout South Yorkshire can continue for many years to come.
“ So come and dance the night away to some of the country’s best-loved pop songs from Tony and our Lost Chord musicians.”
Tickets cost £65 and include a drinks reception and three-course dinner.
