The Hub at Fairfield is an extension to Mind in Croydon’s Social Networking Service which offers support to people to understand and manage their mental and physical health issues.
The Hub also provides a safe place for people who are lonely and isolated to meet and socialise with people and a place for them to receive practical help and advice. Read more about it here: http://www.mindincroydon.org.uk/the-hub.asp
The choir has sung at the Hub many times now (over the last 4 years) and we try to visit as often as possible. We always receive a warm welcome from staff and users of the service and it feels wonderful to be able to share music, fun and laughter with such a lovely crowd.
No matter how big or small the audience the passion is always the same in our performances. Each one feels just as important to us. We welcome every member of every audience we sing for a chance to feel good despite the many challenges and difficulties they may face. It's clear to see they all feel part of our choir family! They even requested to sing 'We are family' with us on this visit - a very special moment.
Songs on this visit included Asanta Sana (Thank you Jesus), Higher and Higher, Fix you, You've got a Friend, Love in Any Language (well done Theresa!), Take me to the King (well done Chardine!) and Trust Me to name a few- so something for everyone. It was wonderful to see both familiar faces and new and we can't wait to go back soon and share the amazing uplifting power of song again. Thanks, Mind Hub for your love, enthusiasm and support! Your enthusiasm is a beautiful thing - keep singing with us and to us!
