A choir from a Whitton charity caring for adults with dementia will feature on a Christmas album backed by Sir Paul McCartney, thanks to a local music producer.

The album - produced by James Hawkins - will be released on December 14 and Sir Paul has agreed to waive his royalties for ‘We All Stand Together’ so that the twelve charities benefit.

Homelink provides nurse-led day respite care. Every week, 140 local older people come to the centre so that their carers can have a much-needed break.

Jen Clarke, joint lead at Homelink, said: “For a family member or friend, to care for someone with dementia is particularly tough and can bring real heartache.

“When carers get in touch with us for the first time, they are often feeling exhausted, drained, bewildered, guilty, possibly resentful, scared and they can feel isolated and experiencing a sense of loss.

“Homelink, metaphorically speaking, takes the hands of both the carer and the cared for and we try to make life better for both.”

Joining Homelink on the album are the Missing People Choir (Britain's Got Talent Finalists 2017) the Parrs Wood High School Harmony Group (One Love Manchester) and the Greenwich and Lewisham NHS Choir (Christmas Number 1, 2015) amongst others.

All profits from the single and album will be divided equally between the choirs’ associated charities, you can pre-order it from Amazon here.
