Improving the health and well-being
of people living in East Yorkshire
and Northern Lincolnshire
Sing for Life - awarded £500 from our Lazenby Fund, within Help for Health, to fund a singing project. Sing For Life, based in Bridlington, was prompted by a Community Link social prescribing project with the local GP practices who wished to offer the opportunity to sing and socialise for anyone who may be suffering from breathing problems, anxiety, depression or anyone whom the General Practitioners felt might benefit from this uplifting experience. They do not want to charge for the singing sessions as even a small cost might be too much for some people but there is a donation pot when tea and coffee, with biscuits, are served.
A room at The Emmanuel Church in Bridlington is hired for the sessions and even those who said they couldn't sing, do, and heartily! Everyone says they feel the benefits of the weekly get togethers.
