SING&SMILE with the ‘Goldies’ Charity
A charity that puts smiles on the faces of older isolated people is launching at the Kirkgate Centre in mid-March with its FUN daytime Sing&Smile sessions on Monday March 9.
The Golden-Oldies Charity, more fondly known simply as ‘Goldies’, started in the West of England 12 years ago. The founder is Grenville Jones who is well known nationally as a choir leader who has appeared on radio and television many times. Grenville however is always anxious to point out that his charity is NOT about choir singing!
Grenville will take the session himself at the Kirkgate Centre. He’s a man with local connections as his late parents both grew up in Bradford ‘moving south’ in the 1940s. Grenville said;
“From just four sessions back in 2008 we now have over 200 across England and Wales.
“The session at the Kirkgate Centre will be from 10.30am to 11.30am and I warmly invite everyone to come along and discover the fun in a Sing&Smile Goldies session. I guarantee you will leave with a smile on your face! Please come and discover Goldies.”
The sessions are based on the memory-evoking songs of the 60s onwards and the charity Patron is Sir Cliff Richard. To find out more you can visit the charity website www.golden-oldies.org.uk or go along to the Kirkgate Centre, 39a Kirkgate, Shipley BD18 3EH on Monday March 9, everyone is welcome.
