'Fabulous' choir brings disabled people together

A charity in Loughborough is bringing people with learning disabilities, dementia and Downs Syndrome together once a week to sing as part of a choir.

They say it's a huge confidence booster and helps people who may be isolated to make new friends.

Every week the John Storer House choir meet in a church hall in Shepshed to sing along to their favourite tunes.

Activity support Worker Angie Whitmore put the choir together after seeing a number of day care facilities close.

She said:

Everyone mixing together makes it a real nice atmosphere.
