raised of £500 target by 6 supporters

    Weʼve raised £195 to continue to run the South Glos Aphasia Choir and help many more people with aphasia to improve their mood and wellbeing through singing.

    Funded on Wednesday, 4th November 2020

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Aphasia is a language problem following stroke or brain injury. Imagine waking up and opening your mouth to speak and you aren’t able to say anything or what you do say is jumbled or doesnt make sense. People are speaking to you but its as if they are speaking a foreign language. You try to write down your thoughts but that doesn’t work either and reading is affected too. That is the everyday experience for people with aphasia. Amazingly a lot of people with aphasia can still sing even singing a lot of the words. For this reason research has found that choirs for people with aphasia can improve mood and wellbeing and create vital social support.

    We run a choir for people with aphasia in South Gloucestershire and need your support to continue. We have funding until early next year but will need ongoing support to fund resources, the venue hire and the cost of the music therapists to run it.

    Thank you for supporting us!
