Presenting ‘The Voice’ Shepherd Centre style

Voice LogoOver the last few weeks the guys at the shepherd Centre have been practising their routines to compete in our version of ‘The Voice’.

All their hard work paid off as they performed in front of an invited audience, singing songs including Summer Holiday, Mamma Mia, Peggy Sue, Lets Dance, Phantom of the Opera, Green Green Grass of home and Ave Maria.

The songs were all sung brilliantly and with some pretty cool dancing.

The Judges had a hard time picking a winner and concluded that they were all winners and should all share first place.





You can sing under my Umbrella ella – ella – hey – hey


Due to  popular demand ‘Electric Umbrella’ and the amiable Tom Billington returned to the Shepherd Centre for another well attended concert in which everyone enjoyed a bit of singing and dancing and just having fun !

For those of you who don’t know Electric Umbrella is a music project for adults with learning disabilities and is based in Hertfordshire offering a variety of musical experiences aiming to raise the profile of learning disabilities.

Music seems to be a big hit with the guys, with lots of loud fun, the drums being particularly popular, surprisingly tuneful as well, ROCK ON !!

outreachart5a (600 x 448)The Service users at Outreach are due a day out at the London Eye on May 22nd 2014, so as a project and to get in the mood for the trip they have decided to paint a map of the Thames incorporating as many London landmarks as they can fit on it. These landmarks are all individually drawn and designed by the guys themselves.


The project is ongoing and will adorn the walls of Outreach  .
