Music in Hospitals & Care Scotland’s Tour Continues
Total’s E&P UK division were pleased to support another Music in Hospitals & Care (MiHC) concert to a local sheltered accommodation unit in Newtonhill, Aberdeenshire. The residents of Newtonvale Court were treated to an hour long concert by talented musician David Hood.
MiHC works with carefully selected professional musicians and operating across the healthcare field, aiming to bring the therapeutic benefits of live music to people of all ages living with an illness or disability, particularly those in long term care. The charity provides interactive live music sessions for a wide variety of audiences, including patients in hospitals and hospices, residents in care homes, visitors at day care centres and pupils at special schools. Total has provided support to this worthwhile cause since it was established in 1980.
Total’s Materials Analyst, Pam Hayward who attended the concert said: ‘It was lovely to see the elderly residents at Newtonvale Court being entertained by David Hood. David was very engaging, he got everyone to sing and clap along and his selection of songs were well known timeless classics that brought a smile and twinkle to the faces of all in the room. He is a great musician whose entertaining guitar playing, singing and chat was well received by his audience. The residents came in quietly and left with a spring in their step’.
