alzheimer's-societyAlzheimer’s Society responds to Simon ‘Mac’ McDermott’s heart-warming and inspiring videos of him and his dad, the ‘Songaminute’ Man.

Singing in their very own carpool karaoke, Simon McDermott and his dad Teddy Mac have raised a staggering £100,000 for Alzheimer’s Society!

Samantha Eaves, Head of Individual Giving at Alzheimer’s Society, said:

‘We are over the moon to hear that Simon McDermott and his dad Teddy Mac have now raised an incredible £100,000 in aid of Alzheimer’s Society with their ‘Songaminute man’ videos.

‘In a matter of days, these original and touching videos of father and son singing in their own carpool karaoke have taken the world by storm and it’s been fantastic to see such a warm and generous response from the public. Simon is not only raising vital funds for Alzheimer’s Society, but highlighting the positive impact that listening to music and singing can have for people with dementia.

‘It’s great to hear that our National Dementia Helpline has helped Simon while he cares for his father, particularly as he has come to terms with his father’s diagnosis. Our helpline advisers are here to support anyone affected by dementia by providing a listening ear, practical advice and help with signposting to other support services for people with dementia and their carers.

‘We’re enormously grateful to everyone who has supported Simon and his Dad by donating to his JustGiving page and supporting the work of Alzheimer’s Society.’
