Giving ukuleles to hospitalised children in the United Kingdom
Hospital and Home Education Learning Centre at Thorneywood
Thanks to Nick Cutts and the team at OPUS Music we’re sending ukuleles to the Hospital and Home Education Learning Centre at Thorneywood an education provision based in Nottingham for children and young people with health needs.
Thorneywood HHELC includes the Children’s Hospital School serving 13 wards at the Queen’s Medical Centre and the Wolfson Centre at the City Hospital, the Nottingham City Home Education service (including the KS4 Fairmead provision), the Adolescent Class serving inpatients of the Nottingham CAMHS Adolescent Unit and the Hilltop Group.
Our ukuleles will be given to inpatients at The Thorneywood CAMHS adolescent unit. This unit is for young people aged 13-18 who are experiencing mental health difficulties that can no longer be managed in the community. Young people can be admitted for a range of reasons such as depression, anxiety, OCD, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
We’ve also sent a batch of #UASAmnesty ukes to Thorneywood, we had some fantastic concert and tenor size ukuleles donated which will be fantastic for the older kids and teenagers. Thank You!
Thanks again to Nick and the OPUS team and a big welcome to all at Thorneywood HHELC.
Help us raise the funds to continue supporting these children on a regular basis…
