Meeting up at Write Back!

Caring Together members who are taking part in the Write back project in collaboration with Leeds University met up with new and existing Pen Pals at the University last Friday. This was arranged as a meet-up before participating students head off for the Christmas break. It was wonderful for those involved to meet up and everyone took part in a Yorkshire Quiz organised by the University.

A big Welcome at the Leeds Lions Christmas Sing-along


Leeds Lions gave a big welcome to Caring Together, our members and many other groups of people last Friday at St Chad’s in Headingley. Billed as an evening of Tea, Entertainment and Merriment, those attending were treated to a choir as well as an appearance by the Lord Major of Leeds, Councillor Jane Dowson, who herself gave the audience  a solo rendition of a Christmas Carol. A big thanks to the Leeds Lions for their invite and the very best to them for the future.

End of Year Celebration


Caring Together held it’s annual End of Year Celebration at Woodhouse Community Centre last Friday. Lots of people had been preparing for the event for the previous 6 weeks in the Singing Together sessions, a collaboration between Caring Together and LUUMIC (Leeds University Union Music Impact in the Community). The event was a great success. Our members did us proud, raising the rafters with their singing and, for Singing in the Rain, producing their brollies with great visual effect. The LUUMIC volunteers also performed a number of solo pieces. What a talented group of people they are. A big thanks to them and we look forward to more joint work with them in the future. More pictures from the Singing Together sessions later in the week.
