Fabulous Oldies

Duncan Raban began his career taking pictures of the most famous celebrities and A-listers you could ever hope to encounter. After a spell photographing Great Ormond Street Hospital in 2005 – witnessing how brave the children were, and how committed the staff were – his career changed direction. His photography became visual stories of compassion, kindness and bravery.

His belief is that everyday people, with real stories to tell, are the true heroes.

He first started out with a simple hello to get talking to strangers and break the ice. This has now turned into a number of photo series, one of which is the ‘Fabulous Oldies‘.

We would highly recommend setting aside half an hour to read through some of these wonderful, touching, funny and relatable stories from our beloved older generation.

Father and Son sing in aid of Alzheimer’s

Carpool Karaoke with a twist

You might have seen the likes of James Corden with various celebrity passengers, singing their hearts out around L.A.

This video is slightly different, it is of a UK duo: 80 year-old father (Ted) and 40 year-old son (Simon). What makes it special is that Ted was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2013 and now struggles due to his declining memory, however, this song takes him back to singing at Butlins in his youth. It was at Butlins that he earned a nickname: The Songaminute Man.

You might have already seen this wonderfully heartwarming (and viral) video circulating around the internet already, but if you haven’t, here it is in its full glory. (If you don’t know Quando, Quando, Quando, it was performed by Englebert Humperdinck.)

 

As you can hear, Ted certainly hasn’t forgotten how to sing!

Simon set up a JustGiving page to help raise awareness and funds to fight dementia. The video has already racked up millions of views, and over £65,000 to the Alzheimer’s Society.
