A charitable choir We’re loving the Cantabrainers Choir. Created for people with neurological conditions, such as Stroke and Parkinson’s Disease, its purpose is not so much to create sweet music, but to provide a safe environment in which members can rediscover their voice through singing and socialising. Head along from 10 to 11:45am on Wednesdays during school terms at Mary Potter Community Centre, 442 Durham Street Nor
