DPT Charity brings music to our ears

Posted by Devon Partnership Trust in Charity, News on 23rd March, 2021

Our Charity has given patients at Langdon Hospital the chance to experience an array of different instruments. Through the Charity COVID Fund they were able to purchase a harp, an electric guitar, a portable PA system and an ipad compatible keyboard.

Music is scientifically proven to 'lift' mood and increase serotonin levels, something we all need during the pandemic. It also fosters good relationships, inspires and gives an opportunity for the patients to immerse themselves in a creative task.

Kelly Young, Technical Instructor at Langdon Hospital said: “Before charitable funds, I did not have the equipment I needed to run sessions and it has certainly enhanced what I’m able to offer by having the right tools to promote engagement."

If you’d like to fundraise for us, have any questions, or make a donation please email Daniel Robson, Head of Charity Fundraising, at daniel.robson3@nhs.net.

Thank you to everyone that has supported our Charity and has helped to make these small changes, which make a big difference.
