 Une étude indépendante par le Dr Barbra Teater et le Dr Mark Baldwin du ministère des Sciences sociales et politiques à l'Université de Bath a montré que le travail de la Charité Golden Oldies-qui réunit le chant et l'amitié à la vie des personnes âgées et isolés dans l'Ouest de l'Angleterre est d'avoir un effet réel sur leur vie.

"Le résultat le plus important était l'amélioration statistiquement significative de la santé en général auto-déclarés d'avant leur participation aux sessions Goldies maintenant."

 

 

Sir Cliff Richard The charity said Sir Cliff was their ideal patron
 

Sir Cliff Richard has become the first patron of a Bath-based charity which helps elderly people get into music.

Golden Oldies is a music project which gives older people the chance to get together as part of a choir.

The participants, known as Goldies, sing along to music from the 1950s, '60s and '70s.

It was started three years ago by choirmaster Grenville Jones and there are now more than 40 sessions a week in places such as Keynsham and Swindon.

"When Grenville started Goldies in January 2008 he said then that the ideal person to be our patron would be Sir Cliff," said Howard Cunningham-Smith, chairman of the charity trustees.

"We have kept him in touch with our progress since the start and we are honoured that we has agreed to be our patron."

Positive impact

A recent study by the University of Bath found that 90% of those taking part in Golden Oldies sessions said it had a positive impact on their wellbeing.

"The most important result was the statistically significant improvement in self-reported overall health from before their participation in the Goldies sessions to now," said Dr Barbara Teater, who carried out the study.  

"The results of this evaluation clearly indicated how participation enhances a participant's health and well-being, strengthens and stimulates communities."

The charity's latest annual report, out this week, records nearly 1,500 individual Golden Oldies sessions delivered in the last 12 months.

Mr Jones said he hoped to raise £100,000 this year to try to double the number of sessions the charity runs in the region.

He said he wanted to add another eight weekly sessions in Bristol, as well as launching new groups in Wiltshire at Trowbridge, Devizes, Bradford on Avon and Melksham.

 

Actuellement à MEMPHIS où il enregistre son nouvel album, Cliff en a profité pour assister mardi au match de basket entre les Grizzlies de Memphis et  Les Clippers (81-82). Prochainement sur ce blog, je détaillerai les artistes de la SOUL qui chanteront les duos avec Cliff. Au boulot, Coco!
