Age UK Cheshire and Foden’s Band Create A Buzz This Autumn

Published on 10 September 2019 11:52 AM

This autumn Age UK Cheshire is working with the award winning Foden's Band on the Creating a Buzz project, helping to tackle social isolation and loneliness amongst older people through learning to play a musical instrument. 

To help raise funds, Foden’s Band will be performing a ‘Salute to Sinatra & the Swing Legends’ concert at Northwich Memorial Court on Thursday 17th October. The concert will feature the UK’s most popular big band singer, Matt Ford for an evening saluting old blue eyes himself and the legends of swing.

Most people will feel lonely at some point in their lives. It’s a deeply personal experience that - in most cases - will thankfully pass. But for a growing number of people, particularly those in later life, loneliness can define their lives and have a significant impact on their wellbeing. The Creating a Buzz project will provide a wonderful opportunity for older people to be less isolated and learn a new skill from world class musicians”, said Age UK Cheshire, Marketing Officer, Brian Roberts.

“We are looking forward to working with Age UK Cheshire and helping older people be less isolated and share with them the great feeling of playing a musical instrument as well as meeting others and having a good time”, added Darren Lea from Foden’s Band.
