Dawn Gracie is a vintage entertainer with her heart in the 50s & 60s. Since she first made this her full time career in 2012 Dawn has performed at weddings and parties and of course, has a circuit of nursing homes and day centres where her interactive and showgirl style is always well received. More than just a singer, Dawn also organises 'DOs' such as the Forget Me Not afternoon tea which is a Dementia Awareness event on 22nd May - Dawn is an official Dementia Champion and is incredibly proud of the happiness she can bring to those living with dementia and her performances are designed to capture the nostalgia and aura of hte heady days when Brenda Lee and Elvis ruled the hit parade.
The Forget Me Not afternoon tea is sponsored by Thomas Eggar - part of Irwin Mitchel - who say 'This event is about focusing on the strong, positive communities that exist to support those affected by this distressing disease. Looking back on happy memories of times gone by can bring moments of real joy to those with dementia and my colleagues and I are very much looking forward to attending and, of course, dressing to impress in keeping with the vintage theme.'
