Story

Our story is brought to life in a short video on our website.

Covid has devastated the lives of residents from more than 11,000 care homes from across the UK. Hundreds of thousands of elderly and vulnerable people haven’t had visits from friends or family for over three months. And when the concert halls and theatres closed, tens of thousands of professional performing artists found themselves out of work overnight. The silence is deafening - musicians need to make music, and care home residents need to know we still care about them. 

Connecting Stars brings the power of performance into care homes through the magic of technology - totally free for the care homes, and employing musicians, dancers and actors who are paid professional rates for their outstanding talent. Every performance is a personal, one-to-one experience; imagine sitting on stage with a professional musician and they are playing just for you. 

We are raising £10,000 to perform to 800 care home residents, and we need your help to reach our target:   

- £12.50 will help us perform to one resident

- £50 will provide a top-class Constella musician to brighten the day of small group of care home residents

- £100 will help us reach out to another 20 care homes to offer them free performances for their residents

- £500 will bring life changing music to 40 or more residents

Please, donate what you can and share our campaign with your friends and family so we can brighten even more afternoons, and put food on even more artists’ tables.  Any surplus funds from this campaign will go directly to this cause.

If you would like your donation to enable a performance for your loved ones, please get in touch.
