Our Music Room and our Ukulele Group 

                  

 

Our fantastic music room is equipped with several acoustic and electric instruments (including guitars and keyboards), Marshall amplifiers, and a varied range of good-quality percussion instruments.

 

We have recently had our guitars re-strung and re-conditioned, complete with brand new leads, so they're all ready to rock!  

 

With volunteer support offering over 50 years' guitar-playing experience, clients are warmly welcomed to play, sing along and 'have a go', regardless of experience or ability. It doesn't matter whether a client has experience or has never been near an instrument - everyone's welcome to give it a try.

 

Our diverse array of music and lyric  books support clients of all abilities, with jam sessions being frequently enjoyed! 

 

           

 

Ukulele Group

 

Facilitator Freyja (herself a member of the Raund Ukulele Orchestra) offers a friendly and fun Ukulele Group each Tuesday morning here at the centre. All clients are warmly welcomed and a diverse, varied range of songs are learnt and played. Our players even played live at a fundraiser concert back in October of 2018!

An INCREDIBLE London Marathon 2019!

Team HEN were nothing short of phenomenal in this year's Virgin London Marathon! 

 

Each and every runner did an amazing job for us, battling on through shin splints, aches, pains and even lost toenails (OW!) to finish those 26.2 miles for us. We were bowled over by the efforts everyone went to, not only with the intensity of the physical training, but also their creative and imaginative ideas for fundraising, all on top of juggling work and family commitments. Each of them needs a superhero cape! 

 

So far we have raised over £45,000 and we're still counting! It's just amazing, and we will be able to continue enriching and supporting the lives of those managing ABI with this superb amount of money raised.

 

We will shortly be posting some great photos from this special event so watch this space! If you're interested in running for us next year - get in touch!
