Isla St Clair has very kindly agreed to support the cause of "Music for the Elderly", by giving an informal concert in aid of The Concertina Charitable Trust on November 14th. A fabulous opportunity to meet this consummate artist who is a household name and dear to so many hearts!.
If ever we needed a reminder of how important what we
do is, here is a little video to show it...
SALLY AT THE PALLY
Our administrator, Sally Dyson, was thrilled to be invited by the Grocers' Charity to the Diamond Jubilee Lunch held at the Palace of Westminster on Tuesday June 5th. It is an enormous honour for Concertina to have been represented at this historic event and proof positive that the work of providing music for the elderly is now well recognised as being invaluable.

“I wouldn’t have missed this for the world”
“One of our patients has recently been bereaved and critically ill herself and at times lost the will to live. At the end of the concert she whispered to me “I wouldn’t have missed this for the world.” There was singing and feet tapping even in quite depressed clients."
