AC/DC singer Brian Johnson has pledged his support to a small U.K. charity dedicated to treating dementia patients. Johnson's longtime bandmate, guitarist Malcolm Young, recently left the group after it was revealed he was suffering from the disease.

"It's an absolutely amazing boost for a charity run by two people to receive a phone call from the singer of a group that has sold more than 200 million records worldwide," Tony Jameson-Allen, the Sporting Memories Network‘s director, told the Northern Echo (as reported by the Guardian.)

Johnson was apparently motivated to get in touch after learning of the organization's methods, which involve "promoting and developing the use of sporting memories to improve the well-being of older people and helping to tackle dementia, depression and social isolation."
