Rockin' it at Sunbeams


Profile: Oaklea, 28th Feb, 2020

"And I like it I like it I la la la like it....Rockin all over Sunbeams" -yes you guessed it we were channeling our inner Status Quo at Sunbeams!

One of our “Golden Moments” group have just had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon at Annie Mawson’s Sunbeams Music Trust near Penrith. Of course these trips don’t happen by accident -and take a lot of organising by our dedicated teams. Everyone met at Kendal Leisure Centre to board the CCC Community Minibus. This day’s team involved Karen and Pauline from our Leisure Team and our driver was Simon from Oaklea Marketing! (and on board music provided by customer Linda!).

All aboard….once everyone ‘checked in’ and subs paid…we were off

In fine voice: Alice and Steve made a fabulous duo - and had everyone grooving.

Below you can see Callum about to give a superb and passionate rendition of “The Scientist” by Coldplay.

A new supergroup emerges…..take it away Linda….

Anyway as you can gather it was a joyous time with everyone playing a part.

You will forgive us - We occasionally like to blow our own trumpets….!

Big thanks to Sunbeams Music Therapy team for such an engaging session…..we’ll keep quiet about the communal Status Quo number- as all that head banging is quite tiring and it’s almost the weekend! You can find out more about Sunbeams here Sunbeams website

Oh….Just a final snap - Sunbeams is well worth a visit - for us it was extra special - they even have a music room dedicated to one of the young people Oaklea supports…

Will leave the final word to that well known Ancient Greek sage, Plato (he knew a thing or two….)

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” ― Plato
