Weekly News - 15th June 2023

Welcome to our weekly newsletter! 

Coming up we have Online Karaoke (ages 10+), Smilers with Made with Music and Leeds Conservatoire (ages 8-18), Laurens online Speech & Language sessions, Ruth's Yellow Speech and Language Sesssions, Sunbeams (ages 0-4), Makaton for Babies and Families, and Early Development (Caterpillars and Tadpoles). 

Please note the earlier time for the Smilers session which is part of the project run by Made with Music and Leeds Conservatoire. 

We'd also like to encourage everyone to come along to the Leeds Conservatoire concert where the Smilers will be performing. 

We are recruiting, both for volunteers at our shop and cafe 21 Co., and for trustees of Sunshine & Smiles, specifically those with experience or interest in finance.
