Elderly in Britain 'Gain a Voice' Through Charity Single
The Anchor Community Band, comprised of 350 residents throughout the Anchor housing network for seniors, wrote and performed their own song titled See Yourself and recorded the work of art. The single was released on Monday with all proceeds going to the charity, Contact the Elderly. “We want to shout about the great work Contact the Elderly does and we want to give old people a voice, in quite a literal way”, said Carl Martin, the musical director and wellbeing manager for the retirement home where the song was released. The song was third on Amazon’s singles chart on pre-order.
