I have just been told by my wife that the organisation she is working for, MusicSpace in Bristol, needs a few more votes to be awarded a grant by NatWest for the most wonderful work they are doing for disabled people, young and old, disabled by birth or having become severely disabled due to an accident.
The relation to this site is that I was diagnosed with (SP)MS in 2003. We also have a daughter with learning difficulties (Global Developmental Delay). ‘Disabiity’ in general already was close to the heart of my wife (and not only because she too has had severe health issues).
My wife started to work for MusicSpace as a Music Therapist after a 3 year study, that she managed to finish succesfully in spite of the situation at home. I have seen some wonderful sessions whereby it shows that playing an instrument or just listening to someone playing, really makes them smile, not to forget about the fact that for some of them ‘making sounds’ is the only way to communicate and/or to be heard.
That’s why they need your vote! Please read through their story on the website mentioned below, and vote but only if you agree that MusicSpace do some wonderful work! By the way, today is the last day for voting… Many thanks. I will let you know the outcome! Website: http://communityforce.natwest.com/project/976 , thank you!!!
