The Pico Players put on Summer Concert for Contact the Elderly

OCT
23

We were delighted to be chosen as the Pico Player’s charity for their Summer Concert, 2018. Money raised at the concert has gone towards helping us end social isolation and loneliness amongst older people in the UK.

The Pico Players were founded in 2014 by musicians Rosie Wintour and Patrick Massey. Since 2014, the group has grown into a full sized symphony orchestra, performing at least three concerts each year.

Since being founded, The Pico Players have raised more than £45,000 for various charities, including Music for Youth, Live Music Now and The Robes Project.

The Pico Player’s Summer Concert in support of Contact the Elderly took place at St Gabriel’s Church in central London. Concert goers were treated to renditions of Johannes Brahms’ Symphony No. 3, Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man and Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.

Jade Lowe, Community Fundraiser, said, 

"We were delighted when The Pico Players chose us as the charity for their summer concert. The concert was amazing, and their kind donation will help us support thousands of older people across the UK." 

The Pico Player’s concert raised £1,701.33 for the cause. We will use the money to maintain our service, helping socially isolated older people reconnect with their community, develop new friendships and break the cycle of social isolation.

Thank you to The Pico Players from everyone at Contact the Elderly.
