Can You Sing and Smile?
A popular charity that brings songs and smiles to older people wants to find an Exeter-based leader as it launches in the city.
Exeter Guildhall was filled with music this Monday, December 5, when a charity that reaches out to older people launched in the city.
Golden-Oldies started in Bath 10 years ago and has grown across England and Wales with its popular daytime singing and activity sessions in community rooms.
The charity was approached by Exeter City Council earlier this year and the Lord Mayor of Exeter, Cllr Cynthia Thompson, joined a group of residents from some of the Council’s Older Persons’ Housing Schemes at a sing and smile session this Monday.
Founder Grenville Jones said;
“We want to start sessions in Exeter in the new year and I do need to find someone in the city who would love to take our charity forward. You don’t have to be a choir leader, but a strong voice and big personality would definitely help. If you would like to help our charity develop in and around Exeter please contact me on 01761 472468.”
