CHILDREN at Claire House will be treated to an evening of lively sea shanties and folk music.
Folk band The Glendale Family will perform to staff and families at the children’s hospice in Bebington tomorrow (February 28).
The Glendale Family are a unique modern folk band which are inspired by heroic figures, tall tales and the natural world.
Staff said children at Claire House were very excited about the live show.
Activities coordinator Catherine Livesey said: “Music therapy is something all the children and young people at Claire House love and it is always great to have musicians come and perform for us.
“Thank you to The Glendale Family for coming and bringing the party to life.”
The evening has been paid for by the charity Music In Hospitals, which aims to bring the benefits of live music to sick and disabled adults and children in a wide variety of institutions.
Music in Hospitals’ North West coordinator Sid Richards said: “We have a really good connection with Claire House and we hold between four and five concerts there every year.
“The charity really exists to provide relief from pain. Often people who become ill feel their illness can take over.
“Our charity shows the families of those who are ill or have disabilities how music can really bring people together.”
