You might have seen the news that, thanks to National Lottery players, up to £600 million of National Lottery funding will be distributed to charities and organisations most impacted by coronavirus, helping to support communities across the UK. Many projects have already adapted to the crisis, such as the Wiltshire Music Centre’s wonderful Zone Club.
Zone Club is a creative project for young learning-disabled adults, aged 16+, where they can create their own music, lyrics, dance and films - supporting increased wellbeing and reduced social isolation. Since having closed to the public, the team set out to throw open its digital doors and take the Club online. But how? Music leaders met in a Zoom meeting, which was streamed out to the Clubbers via the WMC YouTube channel. Throughout the session, participants shared messages and ideas for lyrics, culminating in the creation of a new song that included rainbows, empty buses and their love for the NHS. ????
