The Voice cLoud, Waveney

The Voice cLoud celebrate maritime music and Waveney’s long standing history through the art of song.

The Voice cLoud are celebrating receiving a grant of £30,577 from People’s Health Trust, using money raised by The Health Lottery in the East.

This new two-year singing for wellbeing project aims to celebrate the history and cultural heritage of music from the Waveney and Suffolk Coast. The fortnightly sessions will teach participants songs from the maritime and local seafaring community along the coast. Participants will explore the historical context through understanding where and why these songs were sung and learning about any local connections.

Local people of all backgrounds and diversities (young, older, those with mental health issues, vulnerable adults, etc) from rural Waveney will be encouraged to attend, as well as anybody else who would like to learn about the genre.

The project ultimately aims to address issues of social or emotional isolation, mental ill-health and general community and neighbourhood work.

Chris Lunn, spokesperson for The Health Lottery East, said: “We are delighted that money raised through The Health Lottery in the East is supporting local projects like this one.” To date, over £7.7 million has been raised for Health Lottery East, which helps to make a difference to these local good causes groups.

Between 1 December and 31 December 2018, Health Lottery East will benefit from Health Lottery tickets sold for all draws. You can buy Health Lottery tickets in advance for these draws online at or from more than 32,000 local retailers nationwide including The Post Office, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, ASDA, Morrisons and WH Smith.
