Marina & Jules attended memory afternoons & listened to the reminiscing of the people there. The afternoons were filled with laughter & fun, sometimes a little sad, although all in all the afternoons were very engaging & time flew. This kind of forum, created by the Warm & Toasty Club, is a wonderful way for people to find out more about one another & to let the wider world know who they are. The tea & choice of biscuits was brilliant to. All three commissioned tracks are now complete and can be purchased for just £5 inc P&P.
The Coast to Coast project is funded by Arts Council England , the Big Lottery Fund, Heritage Lottery Fund, Essex County Council & Grassroots Charity. Read more about: The Warm and Toasty Club
