Thanks to funding from Warwickshire County Council we delivered our Suitcase Stories project online to three care homes (Westlands, Anya Court and Cedar Lodge) in Rugby online through Zoom from November 2020 to May 2021 for 5 weeks each. Helen Fountain did the reminiscence work and Orchestra of the Swan played the music and encouraged people to sing along. Handling objects were provided by Warwickshire Reminiscence Action Project, photographed and presented through powerpoint on Zoom. Each week the sessions had a different theme and Helen showed photos of the objects to stimulate discussions and memories. The musicians also played music to those themes.
