A SONGWRITER who lost his mum through Alzheimer's has recorded an album to raise cash to help treat the illness.
David Read who was forced to watch his mum Janet battle with the disease until she died in September last year has released the CD to collect money for the Alzheimer's Research Trust.
The singer who lives in Shoreditch created Know That I Should Know You, which is a mixture of folk, blues and indie music, with the help of his producer-son Stuart.
And the Read family are hoping to raise at least �30,000 for the charity.
