Hull Community Voices successfully received a grant from the Postcode Community Trust, which is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Our project received £1350 from the Trust to support our project to bring singing into the wider community of Hull. During 2018 we are arranging accessible singing workshops in a range of locations such as Riverside Extra Care residential accommodation, Wheeler Street Primary School and Macmillan’s Celebration of Life event. There are also some public events which will be open to all – so far we have sung at the Danish Church Choir Festival and in the Trinity Market and hope to hold more public sessions in September 2018.
