Yorkshire Wolds Community Choir has an issue. A mouse ate their piano during lockdown! Luckily, they now have a new piano, but they do require choir members. They rehearse on Monday evenings in Hutton Cranswick and Tuesday evenings in Leconfield, and have so far raised over £17,000 for charity! There's no audition, and they only charge £2 a week for the weeks you can attend.

1.4 million workers over 50 are now saving less for their retirement compared to pre-pandemic times, creating a £5.2 million "pension hole". We find out more from Emma Bryon at Legal and General, who have put together a number of calculators to work out how much you might have in retirement based on your level of saving, plus a new podcast series to try & make the subject of pensions more accessible & fun. Have a listen to find out more.
