Ruth Boulton, Music Therapist, recently attended a Health Promotion Service open day in Boscawen Park and conducted an open music therapy session. Ruth said: It was a fun day for adults with learning disability, also involving publicity of health and safety issues. About 20 people attended across the session, just pitching in and making music together. Lovely atmosphere. There will be a similar event in Newquay on 4th September at Fistral Beach.
The Trust is delighted to announce that it has been awarded a grant from Awards4All for music therapy to take place in the St Ives Bay area. Sessions will be with pre-school children who have additional needs, and their families, and will be held in the St Ives Bay Clinic, Hayle Children’s Centre and a local school.
