Our ever increasing number of Goldies Cymru sessions across Wales includes the regular Thursday morning sing at the Rhydypenau Library led by Sue Thomas. Click HERE too see our lovely video for you to see and meet the people to whom Goldies makes such a difference.
Session details can be found by clicking here – everyone is welcome and at the sessions you will meet our amazing session leaders. Apart from community rooms and church halls, we also run a number of sessions with the Coal Industry Social Welfare Organisation and, in partnership with Cardiff City Council, a number of daytime sessions at their libraries – who said that you had to keep quiet in a library and you will see from our picture above the happy group pictured at the Cardiff Central Library Hub.
Goldies Cymru also runs an intergenerational schools programme called Time after Time where we encourage schools to open their doors to older people from their communities to take part in projects, concerts and other events. If you are a school who would like to take part in our Time after Time event then the man to call is Emlyn Schiavone – here is his email – email@example.com

From the many pictures on this website, you will see how we have come to be called the sing and smile charity, this could not have been achieved without the support of Wales Lottery and the Moondance Foundation.
KEEP UP TO DATE WITH GOLDIES EVENTS HERE
Hundreds of older people will head for the All Nations Centre, in Sachville Avenue, Cardiff, next Monday October 17 for a day of entertainment and information.
A three year academic study on the work of the Golden-Oldies Charity with older people has underlined the value of social singing for those who are most at risk of loneliness in society.
We are a small charity and rely on donations and funding to take our work forward. You may have seen Goldies featured on BBC 1 television on Sunday Morning Live at the beginning of October this year.
If you would like to know more about supporting our work then please contact us.
