SPRING BALL 2017 A RESOUNDING SUCCESS

With Music In Mind Spring Ball took place on Friday 24th April in The Bear Hotel, Cowbridge and a great night was had by all. After a short presentation and speeches, guests enjoyed a two course meal and wine followed by a raffle and silent auction. Once the prizes had been given out the guests danced the night away to music from The Velveteens.

We were thrilled that, in total, the night raised over £2600, all of which will go straight towards running our groups across South Wales.

Group member leads workshop

In March, group member Madeline led a workshop in which she asked With Music In Mind members to write down and discuss how With Music In Mind had affected them. The answers were wide-ranging and extremely positive and included words and phrases such as 'energising', 'provides structure to the week', 'non-judgemental', 'fun', 'stops loneliness', 'releases endorphins' and 'builds friendships'. We have produced a word cloud with all the answers which you can see here. 

Many thanks to Madeline for such a great idea.
