Give A Song: Doorstep performances cheer up shielding residents

When local volunteer and musician Chloe Edwards-Wood read a book about the power of music, she was inspired to organise socially distant performances for Lewisham borough’s vulnerable and shielding residents.

The project, called Give A Song, was set up last month and aims to reach those isolating as a result of the virus. Edwards-Wood has teamed up with Goldsmiths Community Centre in Catford, to promote the initiative to community networks including care homes, social landlords and befriending organisations to help identify those who could benefit from a little doorstep cheer.
