The evening was a chance to say ‘thank you’ to the many people who have made soundLINCS what it is today.

It was an evening filled with music, the sharing of memories and a very sizeable cake.

Nikki-Kate Heyes MBE, soundLINCS chief executive, exclaimed “It was truly the soundLINCS way to celebrate reaching this significant milestone and it was wonderful to witness such a fantastic group of people coming together to celebrate this moment in the charity’s history.”

The charity also held an event at The Blue Room in Lincoln celebrating a selection of soundLINCS’ New Tricks scheme groups, including, The Old School Killing Machine, Insert Name Here, Stringemy Jig and One Good Eye.

Nicola Stanton, soundLINCS’ programme development officer, and the New Trick lead, remarked “This is amazing, we could not be happier.

“This is what the project is all about, older adults coming together and having fun with music.

“It was the perfect way to kick off the 20th anniversary year of soundLINCS.

“All the participants worked incredibly hard over the last few months to bring the evening together, it was fabulous.
