‘Glue’ is our first ever charity single to raise money for music therapy in dementia care.

‘Glue’ depicts the life story of Stan and Ruth Grimmett. They lived a happy life, filled with love and surrounded by family, before Stan's diagnosis of vascular dementia. Despite this devastating condition claiming most of his memories, he was still able to let Ruth know that she'd been the love of his life; the Glue that had been holding him on.

With the support of Ruth and the rest of Stan's family, we're aiming to raise £10,000 to provide music therapy to people living with dementia. You can help us by downloading this track, making a donation and sharing it with friends and family.

Music therapy is a group-led or one-to-one treatment that helps to alleviate some of the symptoms of dementia – such as agitation and anxiety – experienced by Stan and millions of others. It gives people living with dementia a chance to unlock special memories and express emotions and feelings that other forms of communication cannot, even if the individual is no longer able to speak or respond to other people’s words.
