Keep Singing Keepsake - Runnymede Court, 2016

The ‘Keep Singing, Keepsake’ Project (KKP) works with older people in a range of residential and community settings. A weekly group singing session is designed to strengthen social ties and improve emotional wellbeing among the participants. CDs and DVDs are made from the sessions to give to families and friends as keepsakes. The keepsakes provide an historical record of the project and information for others who wish to consider similar work. The project also aims to promote intergenerational communication and understanding via opportunities for these singing groups to perform with groups of young people working with Plymouth Music Zone.
