A dementia choir from Wembley raised the roof at a special concert in Southwark Cathedral.
The Memory Café choir rounded off an evening of music where they joined other choirs at a Raise Your Voices concert on November 8.
Vicar Steve Morris said: “The trip to Southwark was an honour, but also a great adventure.
“It is good to be part of something good and helps us all to feel better about the world.
“We started off with just a small group and now we have started a movement that’s spreading.”
