Piano Player - Care Home

We are looking for volunteers to play the piano for our residents whose day can be boosted by a good sing song around the piano. Some of our residents receive no visitors and loneliness can be a major problem. Being transported back to their younger days by hearing the tunes of their youth helps to improve the quality of life for our residents. This is a rewarding role that can be fun as well as challenging, and you can make a difference to the lives of vulnerable people.

Could you spare an hour or two on a regular basis?
