TOWERSEY SUCCESS IN SAVING MUSIC THERARY AT ROWCROFT
Following tremendous efforts from many sources, generous donations allowed Towersey to fund the continuation of the MUSIC THERAPY post at Rowcroft Hospice which was scheduled to be discontinued in 2016. After 18 months Rowcroft, being in an improved financial situation, were able to reinstate their own funding of the MT post which took place earlier last year.
Sue Rivett LTCL.MA, our music therapist covering the Exeter area is doing valuable work where MT has been introduced at Barton Place Nursing Home and is also developing MT as part of a team at Cullompton Integrated Health Centre. We are also working towards a similar facility at Hemyock.
MARK WALKER our volunteer completed the London Marathon on 28 April and with Gift Aid raised the magnificent sum of £2200.00 plus for his efforts. A wonderful achievement and a big thank you from us all Mark.
David Holmes, our music therapist at Rowcroft Hospice commenced music therapy sessions in the Palliative Care Team at Torbay Hospital at the beginning of April. This has been set up in conjunction with Rowcroft and which furthers the Towersey ethos of extending the provision of music therapy in South Devon.
Nicholas McCarthy, our generous and supportive Patron is giving on our behalf a piano recital at St. Paul's Church, Grove Park, Chiswick on Friday 7th June. Commencing at 7pm he will perform works by Blumanfield/ R.Strauss/ Brahms/ Bellini/Bartok and others.
Tickets: £15.00 to include buffet supper or £12.00 concessionary. Tickets avaiable at the entrance.
Nicholas is already booked to deliver another recital for us at Newton Abbot next year ...... on 15th May 2020 for which further details will be announced.
