Hi all, Emma Shearman from the Golden-Oldies Charity (Goldies) here.
Looking forward to getting to know a few more organisations, making some more working partnerships and combating loneliness and isolation together.
The Goldies Charity are well known and loved for our daytime Sing&Smile sessions which, prior to Lockdown, numbered 220 groups across England and Wales reaching 3500 people every month. These fun social sing-along sessions, alongside intergenerational activities, Age Awareness days, concerts and festive celebrations, aim to combat loneliness with older isolated and vulnerable disabled people, building stronger communities and supportive friendships.
The COVID-19 pandemic has meant the temporary closure of all Sing&Smile sessions across England and Wales from March 2020, we adapted quickly with the launch of our first ever digital service – http://www.goldieslive.com – fun, free online sing-along, stretch and information sessions every Tuesday and Thursday at 11.00am. If you know someone stuck at home who would enjoy singing with us from their sofa, please tell them about GoldiesLive, it’s completely free of charge. Or if you have any free support services you would like us to inform our participants about then get in touch with me email@example.com, we frequently host people (or short videos) in our Tuesday sessions.
