Tom, who specialises in drumming workshops for reducing stress and improving confidence, will take you through a video session, showing you how to use household items to create sound. Enjoy the power of rhythm and and music, and surprise yourself with what you can create!

Rhythm to a T: Friday 9th October

The first session will be online on Friday 9th October. Email us for information and access to the session.

Past Events: Virtual FunEvent

Our Virtual FunEvent took part on Sunday 2nd August 2020. Participants were invited to run, walk, cycle, or take part in the activity of their choice, covering whatever distance they could. 

Everyone aimed to start the event together (virtually) at 10am, and it was a wonderful sense of togetherness to see all of the photos and messages come in. Every single FunEvent participant put in a great effort to #gainsometraction!

The aim was to raise awareness of our charity so that people come to know that we are here to offer holistic mental and physical health support to families and carers as well as patients, and we were absolutely thrilled to see so many people taking part, and having fun!

Thank you to everyone who joined the fun, wearing your t-shirts and waving your flags, and of course to everyone who made a donation to https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/gainsometraction in support.

The Peter Edwards Trio and the Laryngectomy Choir!

Many thanks to everyone who turned out to Paisley Abbey on a wet Saturday afternoon! With your support, we raised over £500! See pics below
