Our Gateshead

Teams and Bensham Community Care has been nominated for an award!!

Teams and Bensham Community Care have been nominated for an Aviva Community Fund award. 

If successful, the charity will receive between £1,001 and £5,000 towards music therapy sessions for their lunch club members who are older Gateshead residents. Not only do the members thoroughly enjoy music but the benefits are far-reaching, particularly for those with short term memory problems. They experience a great sense of comfort and control, as well as relaxation, when singing songs from the past. 

You can find out more about the award and Teams and Bensham Community Care by clicking on the link below. While you're there, you can also see a video one of the recent music projects our members have completed. You can hear the song they wrote and performed and see images of the recording session at the lounge. (It's worth popping to the page just to view that, it's lovely!)

I hope you can vote for the music and memory project, and are able to share this link with friends, colleagues or loved ones who may wish to support us.
