Halesowen C of E Primary School's choir will be attending their nearby Brett Young Day Centre on Friday 24 March as part of Red Nose Day to raise awareness of Alzheimer's disease.
The Sing-a-Song challenge has been organised by the National Activity Providers Association (NAPA), and is their national, intergenerational challenge to bring together residents, families, staff and young people.
The event has been created to raise awareness of Alzheimer's disease, the most common cause of dementia, and is being sponsored by Unilever PG Tips and Dudley Catering, Cleaning and Caretaking Services, who will be providing refreshments and decorations on the day.
The choir will include 17 pupils and staff, with an audience of over 40 people consisting of school staff, carers and families of the pupils. Lyrics to the song include 'Sing! Sing a song. Sing out loud, sing out strong. Sing of good things not bad, sing of happy, not sad.'
Councillor Kurshid Ahmed, cabinet member for regeneration and enterprise, said the following about the event:
"It's great that we have a local school getting involved in something taking place at a national level. Red Nose Day is a brilliant opportunity to raise money and awareness of many issues families all over Dudley and the rest of the country face on a daily basis, including awful diseases like Alzheimer's. Hopefully, with an event like this, we can do our part as a local authority to raise some money and bring our community together."
