Paul Harvey’s Four Notes composition, videoed by his son Nick, went viral across social media in September 2020. Paul is 80 and lives with Dementia. The piece was then recorded by the BBC Philharmonic in October and came to the attention of Sir Tom Hunter (of The Hunter Foundation) via BBC Breakfast. The fund was launched at the start of the year, created following a kind donation from The Hunter Foundation, which Paul & Nick Harvey passed on to The Utley Foundation specifically for Music for Dementia. The fund has been shared between 27 organisations across the UK delivering services for people living with dementia.
