February Half-Term workshops MADE SOME NOISE!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We  were delighted to welcome back BeatFeet to run a FREE special inclusive February half-term Drumming Workshop for our families.

Jude from BeatFeet told us that “Drumming naturally creates a sense of belonging and community, it encourages positive communication and social and emotional skills” 

We could certainly feel this –   everyone involved in the session experienced both a musical experience and a ‘coming together’ that left us totally energised.

BeatFeet has been funded by local charity, The Liz Winwood Foundation, to deliver a series of drumming workshops in special education schools and organisations around Nottingham.

The charity has as its core aim to enhance and support the upkeep of the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of children, their families and their surrounding communities.

We were able to see, hear and experience for ourselves exactly why the organisation were able to get their funding – we found it was a GREAT way for our parents/carers and children to come together and make some noise!  A massive thankyou to Jude from BeatFeet! …more information can be found about them at https://www.beatfeetdrumming.co.uk/

We welcomed Heather Pyne from Pawsitive Squad CIC to a very special edition of MEET UP MONTHLY. Heather shared with us how she works with dogs and their owners to support young people with disabilities and their families.

During our session Heather demonstrated how Pepsi the therapy/support dogs can do a fabulous range of support services for her family.
