Alpha House was lucky enough to have the Find Your Voice Choir give our lads 6 weeks of singing training. At first, the lads were a little weary about the idea, but we were all amazed how much they all enjoyed it! Watch our video of the final performance in which the choir sings Don’t Stop by Journey.

The Alpha House lads enjoyed working with Find Your Voice so much, that we have arranged for them to come back for another 6 weeks starting next month.

The Find Your Voice Choir works with people with little (or in this case none) experience in choir singing and helps them to “find their voice” so to speak. Throughout 6 sessions of training, the Alpha House choir learned some basics of singing and it was a pleasure to see their confidence grow and their talents shine through.

We can’t wait for the next 6 week session to see how the next group enjoy this musical experience!!

 

The boys of Alpha House brought back a trophy from this weekend’s Celebration of Recovery 5-A-Side football tournament, hosted by the Bridge Project at GOALS in Leeds.

The tournament consisted of teams from multiple recovery-based organizations such as Growing Rooms, The Vault, The Space, Reflections and more.

Despite some tough competition including teams with ex professional football players, Alpha House managed to pull through and bring the winner’s trophy home.

Alpha House was split into two teams and one team, “Alpha Dogs” won 1st place, while the second team from Alpha, “Mean Machines” brought home a respectable 4th place.

We couldn’t be more proud of our lads, and we can’t wait to play again next year!!

And a massive thank you to Tony, Simon and everyone else at Bridge for organizing this great event!
