Donation to Music in Hospitals & Care

Trustee, W.Bro. David Chambers, presenting a cheque for £3,000 on behalf of the MMC to Claire Owen, Director for South England, of the Music in Hospitals & Care.

Music in Hospitals & Care (MiHC) is a charity providing live music sessions for people who are receiving care or treatment in healthcare settings across the UK.

Since 1948, MiHC has been breaking down the barriers which prevent people, regardless of their health or wellbeing, from accessing the benefits of live music.

Their sessions are designed to humanise clinical settings, reach and connect people, encourage communication and meaningful interactions and evoke emotions and memories when it matters most.

This grant us to help fund ten concerts in and around the Province of Middlesex.

Prince Michael of Kent Court and Northwick Park Hospital are among past recipients of their concerts.

Music in Hospitals & Care spreads Joy through Live Music across the length and breadth of the UK, from the Shetland Isles and the Highlands of Scotland to Northern Ireland, the Valleys of Wales and down to the south coast of England.

Each unique concert is delivered by professional musicians and tailored to meet the needs of the audience group.

From lullabies for premature babies to old favourites for those living with dementia, we operate in a wide range of healthcare environments including hospitals, hospices, care homes, day centres, special schools and community settings.

They have offices in England, Scotland and Wales, with over 680 musicians spread far and wide.

They are able to bring the benefits of engagement with live music to over 90,000 people in care each year.
