Activities range from arts and crafts sessions that pair children with care home residents, to a music group aimed at children up to four years old, their grown-ups and older people. “Louise works super hard to bring happiness to everyone,” says one of the many who nominated her. “Some of my happiest moments have been at The Together Project sessions.” Another says: “Louise’s contribution to communities and her positive attitude are truly inspirational. She lights up rooms with her beautiful smile and sense of calm. She’s made such a difference to so many people’s lives and she is the embodiment of joy.”
