Two great bands – live! …and all about the Marillac

With the seventh Phoenix FM Creative Sessions being recorded a stone’s throw from our studios at the Brentwood Centre it was great this morning to welcome a couple of bands onto the programme for a chat and to play some songs live. 5-piece Belter played acoustic versions of three songs, including their recently released first single, TV junkie; and the highly acclaimed Midway Still, who released their first album 20 years ago, sang with Paul on guitar. The Creative Sessions are a great way of giving exposure to a wide range of talent, and it was brilliant to be able to have two great bands in the studio.

I also chatted with Volunteer Coordinator with the Marillac Care Home, Amanda Trew. The Marillac, in a beautiful setting in Warley, is a residential home caring for about 50 adults with a range of physical and neurological disabilities, and Amanda explained that they’re currently going through an exciting phase of expansion, meaning they can improve still further the care they’re able to provide. Amanda also talked about the various ways that people can get involved as volunteers, including joining in with a sport that I’d not heard of before! If you’d like to chat with Amanda about becoming a volunteer – particularly if you enjoy spending time getting to know new people – phone 01277 220276, or email amandat@marillac.co.uk.
