PM honours Goldies

The Golden-Oldies charity, which runs “Songs & Smiles” sessions in Bristol and across the West, has been honoured by the Prime Minister.

Rishi Sunak awarded the Goldies choirs his Points of Light award in recognition of the work they do to support wellbeing.

The organisation’s founder Grenville Jones said: “On behalf of the Golden-Oldies charity and the hundreds of older people whose lives are brightened by Songs & Smiles I wish to send a huge message of thanks to the PM for recognising the value of our work.”

 Goldies were particularly active in the run-up to Christmas. Their events included festivities at St Werburgh’s Community Centre where they ran a singalong for more than 100 people.
