Caring Together were invited to, and attended, the annual University of Leeds Older People’s Tea Party last week. As per usual we were treated fantastically well by the students and fed, watered and entertained to a high standard. Many thanks to all of the staff and students for organising this. It is greatly appreciated.
Caring Together staff and members have been attending the Connect and Create sessions run by Arts & Minds for a number of months now. The idea is for Arts & Minds members to get together, find out what’s going on, to discuss future plans, and to be a bit creative. Every month they ask you to bring something that you may wish to share:
When: 1st Monday of the month 2 – 4 pm
Where: The Tetley, Hunslet Rd, Leeds LS10 1JQ
Cost: Free, free refreshments
Caring Together attended the latest lunchtime concert at the Clothworkers Centenary Concert Hall, School of Music, University of Leeds on Friday. These free concerts are increasingly attracting attention from our members.

March 29th, 2019 | Time: 13:05 — 13:55
Matt Anderson Quartet
New music from the Matt Anderson Quartet album ‘Rambling’.
London-based saxophonist and award-winning composer Matt Anderson presents a new quartet touring their new release, ‘Rambling,’ on Jellymould Jazz. The band seeks to bring together seemingly distinct musical influences, for example exploring the common ground between the folk music reminiscent of Matt’s rural upbringing in the North Yorkshire Moors, the bluesy, country strains of Bill Frisell and Scandinavian jazz, culminating in a lyrical and honest Afro-Celtic sound world.
LUUMIC (Leeds University Union Music Impact in the Community) recently attended our Tuesday and Wednesday Groups in Woodhouse and Little London respectively. Musical Bingo was the theme of the sessions, and as is usual, was very well received.
LUU Music Impact in the Community (LUUMIC) work in and around Leeds to bring together different social groups through music workshops, projects and sessions run by their volunteers.
Caring Together members and staff met up this afternoon for a bite to eat at TJ’s in Woodhouse. If you are interested in joining us for lunch and a chat for a couple of hours, phone us on 2430298 and we can arrange to meet you at the venue. We meet once a month at one of the bars around Woodhouse, Little London and the City Centre.
Caring Together had a lovely afternoon in Kirkstall last week on an accessible shopping outing for members who needed additional support. Many thanks to all those who volunteered on the day. We will be organising these outings on a periodic basis. We will advertise details of future outings in our newsletter.
World Storytelling Day 2019
The Wednesday Group will be celebrating World Storytelling Day on
Wednesday 20th March
Little London Community Centre
(everyone has a story, what’s yours?)
World Storytelling Day is a global celebration of the art of oral Storytelling It is celebrated every year on the March Equinox, on (or near) March 20. On World Storytelling Day, as many people as possible tell and listen to stories in as many languages and at as many places as possible, during the same day and night. Participants tell each other about their events in order to share stories and inspiration, to learn from each other and create International contacts.
The significance in the event lies in the fact that it is the first global celebration of storytelling of its kind, and has been important in forging links between storytellers often working far apart from each other. It has also been significant in drawing public and media attention to storytelling as an artform.
