Music & deep healing at Bridgeside Lodge Care Home

We did it
On 10th December 2021 we successfully raised £5,542 with 63 supporters in 530 days

I am raising money for a charitable cause that is very important to me so please donate and help me reach my target

Started on 28th June 2020 London, England, United Kingdom

Ending soon! Our deadline is Monday 3rd August so please donate soon if you can


The Spitz takes professional musicians in to care homes and day centres to improve the quality of life of frail and disadvantaged elders through live music-making activities - reducing isolation and enhancing wellbeing and cognitive function.

We are currently in long-term residency at Bridgeside Lodge Care Home in Islington, London.

When coronavirus forced Bridgeside Lodge Care Home (BSL)- to close its doors to non-essential visitors, we adapted our approach. Spitz musicians recorded personalised songs for residents and we created a weekly “clap for carers” video which you can see on our YouTube channel 


Since the lockdown restrictions have begun to ease, we’ve been able to return to the garden of Bridgeside Lodge for a series of socially-distanced concerts. 

Your donation will enable us to continue our work throughout the summer and for care home residents to benefit from the positive impact of live music.


Once we are allowed back into the Home, we will run a number of musical 'gatherings' to bring the entire BSL community together (including bereaved relatives).  

These will involve live music, chatting, grief counselling and therapeutic support offering vital and sensitive friendship/emotional reassurance in a safe environment. 

Musicians will tour corridors/communal spaces, reaching all residents, bringing comfort, joy and social connection while underscoring the healing atmosphere.

This is an innovative cross-sector collaboration between a music charity and the health & social care sector. We have excellent existing relationships with the staff of Bridgeside Lodge, with residents and with family members.  


Thank you for taking the time to visit our campaign and we hope you will donate to our cause.
