Adults aged 50+ in Lincoln can try their hand at new music tricks thanks to £20,000 of funding support.
Lincoln-based community music organisation soundLINCS will grow its New Tricks music sessions for older adults after the generous cash boost.
Postcode Community Trust awarded the project £20,000, allowing them to take New Tricks to a dozen locations around Lincolnshire, including Lincoln, North Hykeham, Spalding, Grantham, Grimsby, Woodhall Spa, Gainsborough and many more.
soundLINCS CEO Nikkie-Kate Heyes said “We are discovering an ever-growing and enthusiastic abundance of individuals wanting to make music through the project.”
“We truly believe that it should be a right for all older adults to have access to music, be that as an audience member or as an active participant, at home, within a care home, in hospital, hospice or within the local community”.
She urged existing and brand-new musicians, playing all instruments to come to the sessions, whether you’re after creating musics, exploring new instruments or learning your favourite songs as part of a exciting social group.
