Covid has devastated the lives of the residents of more than 11,000 care homes from Penzance to Inverness. Hundreds of thousands of elderly and vulnerable people haven’t had visits from friends or family for over three months. And when the concert halls and theatres closed, tens of thousands of professional performing artists found themselves out of work overnight. The silence is deafening - musicians need to make music, and care home residents need to know we still care about them.
Connecting Stars brings the power of performance into care homes through the magic of technology - totally free for the care homes, and employing musicians, dancers and actors who are paid professional rates for their outstanding talent. Every performance is a personal, one-to-one experience; imagine sitting on stage with a professional musician and they are playing just for you.
We are running this programme from public donations and have launched a JustGiving campaign with a target to reach £10,000.
Please, donate what you can and share our campaign with your friends and family so we can brighten even more afternoons, and put food on even more artists’ tables.
