Ukulele Group set for Star Turn at GeNErosity Festival

Posted on Tuesday, 28 August 2018 1:41 pm | Category: Events Age UK North Yorkshire & Darlington's acclaimed Ukulele Group are to feature in a performance to highlight philanthropy in the North East

Age UK North Yorkshire & Darlington are pleased to be hosting a special performance by their acclaimed Ukulele band as part of a festival to highlight the benefits that philanthropy brings to communities.

GeNErosity – A Festival of Philanthropy and Giving in the North East will be taking place from 7th -27th November 2018 in partnership with Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland and Newcastle University and will be celebrating the rich history of philanthropy in the region, as well as debating its future and encouraging more philanthropic activity.

This free concert will be held on Thursday 15th November 2018 at Age UK North Yorkshire & Darlington’s head office, Bradbury House, in the centre of Darlington.
The Ukulele group meets weekly at the centre and brings together older people from across the town to share music together. Many had never picked up an instrument before joining. One member said:

“Being part of the Ukulele group is more than enjoying the music, it’s like being part of a family, we help and support each other.”

The group regularly gets booked for performances around the community and any proceeds from their concerts go back to help fund Age UK North Yorkshire & Darlington’s work with older people across the area.
