Photos: Concert at Temple Street Children's University Hospital

On Friday 9th October, some members of our Work Options and Wednesday evening choirs sang at a Concert in Temple Street Children's University Hospital

We were invited to sing at a Lunchtime Concert - part of a week-long series of events held in Temple Street to mark World Mental Health Week

Temple Street ran their events in association with See Change - The National Mental Health Stigma Reduction Partnership  


This year's theme was "Dignity"


The therapeutic benefits of singing and music cannot be underestimated - they have helped our members to further develop their self-esteem, communication skills, and enhance emotional well-being 

Our Director and Guitarist was Dave Flood, who got the crowd cheering!
