Musician’s Union “Inspiration” Award winner 2018!

 

We are over the moon to announce that Programme Director, Jo White was announced winner of the Musician’s Union “Inspiration” Award 2018 for her work with the Rhythmix, Wishing Well programme! In just 4 years Wishing Well has grown from a pilot project at The Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton, to a Sussex wide Music in Healthcare programme working in partnership with 6 NHS Trusts. Every week, our Musicians bring music making into hospitals across Sussex and Surrey to work as part of the hospital team, helping to improve people’s stay in hospitals and reduce some of the anxiety that people can feel. We receive such incredible feedback from the families that we work with about how music making has helped their child or an older relative through a difficult time; music really can reach places that medecine can’t and we are looking forward to many more years of making music where it is really needed.
