Goldies aim for glory

A Bristol charity that uses music to brighten lives has been shortlisted for a National Lottery Award. More than 80 disabled and older people regularly attend "Golden Oldies" at Withywood Community Centre. Here they are dancing to "Hi ho Silver Lining" with some visiting schoolchildren.

This is one of many sessions across the West that offer singing, activities and the chance to get to know one another. The Jubilee Time after Time project, part of the charity's work with schools, has been nominated in the Education category. To vote click here
