The charities behind a scheme which aims to bring much-needed companionship to lonely and isolated people across Ryedale needs your vote.
Live Music Now and Ryedale Carers Support are calling on residents to give their backing to Songs and Scones which is held at Amotherby Village Hall
The monthly get togethers feature a live musical performance, followed by tea, scones and cakes - giving audience members the chance to get to know one another.
But to ensure the event can continue, organisers need to secure funding from Engage Mutual. The charitable society has launched an online vote asking the public to decide which scheme they want the money to go towards. A spokesman said: “These events are brilliant for the audience many of whom don’t get out very often.” Visit www.engagemutual.com/foundation/projects/
