DEMENTIA charity Lost Chord is in line for a funding boost of up to £50,000 — but needs public votes to land the cash.
The Big Lottery Fund's People's Projects is showcasing the work of five groups around the country.
And Maltby-based Lord Chord, which provides vital interactive musical experiences for people living with dementia in care homes and day centres, is hoping to receive enough backing for a four or five-figure windfall.
Helena Muller, Lost Chord's founder and chief executive urged people to go online to vote, saying: “Simply to be on the Yorkshire shortlist for the People's Projects is an incredible accolade and a great tribute to the many people who work so tirelessly to bring music into the lives of people living with dementia.
“Now we really do need all our supporters and friends to be ready to get online and vote for us because grant aid of £50,000 would make an enormous difference.”
You can vote for your favourite charity or project until April 3 by visiting www.thepeoplesprojects.org.uk.
