Carlisle choir brings joy to care homes! - The Health Lottery

Carlisle Community Choir were awarded £16,380 by People’s Health Trust using money raised by Health Lottery North East and Cumbria.

This two-year project will enable local people from the Harraby and Upperley areas of Carlisle to come together and form a new community choir, which will involve some existing members of the current choir along with new members, including people in local residential care homes, in order to bring the joy of singing to the residents, many of whom experience memory loss. By bringing members of the choir into the residential settings, the project will encourage social interaction. The project will be led by a steering committee of local residents and people from the care homes.
