Anne Walsh, CEO of Every Day Harmony, welcomed every one and thanked them for taking the time to join us as we celebrated the opening of our first “Harmony Hub”. It was a privilege to see so many stakeholders and supporters of Every Day Harmony and we were especially pleased that the Bangor Ukes agreed to play for us as the event got under way.
We were delighted to have our guest of honour, Mr Gary Lightbody, officially launch our Harmony Hub, and spend over 2 hours chatting and having his picture taken with those in attendance. We are very privileged that Gary has agreed to be an ambassador for Every Day Harmony.
The opening of the Hub gives us an opportunity to increase the provision of our service, and we believe it will enable us to provide at least 500 additional music therapy sessions every year.
Music is a very important part of all of our lives – At Every Day Harmony we see positive outcomes from music therapy every day and we hear some absolutely amazing stories. We were very pleased to share our work with those at the event and to hear from our Chairman, Mr John McCart, our Therapy Manager, Ms Julie Allen and from Emma, one of our service users.
Mr Tony Clarke from Clarke & Co provided a gourmet hamper which we balloted during refreshments at Toasted Café next door.
