This is where we will be sharing stories of those whom we have helped or have been helped in the past through music therapy and more.
“This is my son, Tom, having music therapy a few years ago now with Ray at East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice (EACH). Music therapy is so important and has helped Tom so much. Sadly we don’t see Ray now as Tom has started school at Thomas Wolsey School but he still receives music therapy there. Well done on your 1st birthday and for raising such a fantastic amount for the Hospice.” – Nicky Brown, Supporter
“As part of our ‘Switch’ course, on encouraging and empowering students – through advice and guidance – to create campaigns / pressure groups and ‘be in charge’, Kris and Kath came to Hadleigh High School to deliver a session.
During the session, they explained why they set up their charity and the issues involved in setting it up. They also challenged preconceptions based on appearances – demonstrating the difficulty in identifying those people with life threatening conditions, and even those who may not have a condition themselves, but help others who do.
Kris and Kath gave our students a real insight not only into the ‘bread and butter’ issues of running a charity / campaign, but also the idea that we can all be more charitable everyday. All this was wonderfully delivered in a professional and engaging session. The students gave overwhelmingly positive feedback.
I will certainly be inviting Kris and Kath back for more inspirational, informative and engaging sessions at Hadleigh.” – James MacRae, Teacher at Hadleigh High School
Kris and Kath ran a series of workshops for our Year 10 students as part of a PSHE/RE conference day. They explored how to run a charity and some of the ways they can help the most vulnerable in the community.
Students rated this workshop as “excellent” and learnt a lot from their friendly and professional attitude and their passion for helping others. Some of the students’ feedback is below:
“I learnt the difference between ‘charity’ and ‘charitable’.”
“That even the smallest thing you do can help someone in need.”
“That it is much easier to be charitable and help people than I thought.”
“I learnt about what charity means and that it isn’t just about giving money.” – Joshua Hunt, Chaplin to Felixstowe Academy
Thank you so much to Felixstowe Academy for having us. We had a wonderful day meeting their Year 10 students. We found that all 40 students who attended our workshops were polite, intuitive, engaging and all possessed a great ‘team work’ ethos. They are an absolute credit to both their school and their families. – Kris and Kath, of Krissy and Friends
