Responding to this incredible news, Michael Dent, Director of Fundraising at Alzheimer's Society, said:

'Alzheimer's Society is extremely grateful for Simon’s fantastic fundraising achievements in honour of his father, Teddy Mac. ‘Songaminute’ is an inspiring and touching idea that is not only raising vital funds for the charity, but also highlighting the positive impact that listening to music and singing can have for people with dementia.

'It’s been really encouraging to hear that our National Dementia Helpline has helped Simon while he cares for his father, particularly as he has come to terms with his father’s diagnosis. Our helpline advisers are here to support anyone affected by dementia by providing a listening ear, practical advice and help with signposting to other support services for people with dementia and their carers.

'We are delighted with the amount Simon has raised for Alzheimer's Society and look forward to seeing more videos of him and Teddy singing their hearts out.'
