End of May 2020
In a never-before seen rapid run of newsletters,
promising this will be the
LAST this month!
...with another opportunity to support Key Changes in lockdown, while hearing some great music:
Facebook Live event:
Friday 29th May, 7.00 - 7.30pm
DELIGHTED to report that through the recent 3 Facebook Live events, over £1,600 has been raised, helping to keep our charity going through this strange time.
HUGE THANKS to Owain, Matthew & Susannah, and to everyone for supporting!!
While our regular service is on hold, our therapists are managing to keep in contact with some of their vulnerable clients, greatly appreciated by both clients and carers.
We very much look forward to the further easing of COVID-19 restrictions and for our therapy work to resume, face-to-face.
Another popular Facebook Live event, supporting Key Changes
Friday 29th May 7pm
- with appropriate social distancing!
(featuring Jon Leadbeater on tabla and Owain Clarke on celtic harp) are "magical, almost mesmerising...vibrant and exciting...thoroughly inspiring" Taplas magazine.
Many of you will have seen & heard Tant live at Key Changes annual music therapy conferences - a regular, much-loved lunchtime feature.
This concert will be held outdoors to adhere to current restrictions and will therefore be dependent on the weather. Fingers crossed for a balmy evening!
The event is FREE but all donations help our charity during these difficult times in order that we can continue to provide music therapy to vulnerable groups.

Donate while you listen! Please invite friends and family to do the same.
HUGE THANKS to Owain and Jon!
