Funding buys new music system

A special music system that will be used to deliver sing-a-long sessions to elderly residents in Bedlington has been purchased thanks to funding.

Malcolm Robinson from the Bedlingtonshire Development Trust handed over the Sing for your Life music box to Mind Active Bedlington, which was bought thanks to funding by the Barnes Grassroots Fund at the Community Foundation.

The Music Box itself has a large digital memory with songs from many years ago right up to the present and a huge range of styles.

Whilst the team at Mind Active will be using the Music Box to deliver sing-a-long sessions at local care homes the Music Box is available to other local organisations who deal with elderly residents in Bedlington.

Any group that wants to use the music box can email or call 07564 517735 for more details.
