We have received £ 3,335.00 to fund our community choir which was formed recently for members of Headway who have an acquired brain injury and people from the local community who would like to come and sing each week at Headway House in Credenhill.
The donation was provided by the Santander Foundation, which offers Discovery Grants to UK registered charities for projects that help disadvantaged people in local communities.
Hilary Storer, Music Therapist at the Centre said: “This grant will enable us to develop the choir. Music is adapted to make it fun to sing, but also help people with brain injuries, including strokes, to improve their speech, posture, breathing and the quality of their voice, while enjoying being part of a group.”
The donation will help us develop links with the local community from which we welcome new members, so do get in touch if you would like to give it a try.
We are also looking for an assistant who can sight-read well at the piano and ideally is able to sing too! (Contact us on 01432 761000).
