Session with no name
6 GoodGymers made their way 2.0km to help the Choir With No Name - Brighton in Brighton.
- Tuesday, 19th of December 2023
On Tuesday 21st we carried out the last GoodGym session of the year. What a highlight this was!
The Choir was set up for people who have experience of homelessness and or marginalisation. It is a community initiative building joyful singing friendships in Brighton and other major cities around the country with a link to GoodGym via the wonderful Stefania, who is a massive part of both organisations. Our coordinator and, to Ben's surprise! :-), a singing volunteer member of the Choir in Brighton.
After the choir had eaten, we were offered a delicious meal too. The food was provided by Greek Restaurant Nostos in Holland Road, Hove.
We then had a drink in a local pub and joined the rest of the GoodGymers (10 of us in all) back at the Dome for the performance.
A highlight for me was the choir’s special version of 12 days of Christmas!
I think we all found the evening uplifting, joyful and at times very moving; members of the choir shared their stories of homelessness and how the choir has helped them to feel empowered and part of a community, which is also what GoodGym does for me.
We left the Dome feeling full of Christmas spirit with big smiles and hoarse from all the singing!
Merry Xmas all!
