Make a donation of any amount to help us continue our programs: A Note of Thanks The Music Therapy Department would like to especially acknowledge the support of the following:“We can’t thank Variety – The Children’s Charity enough, we are incredibly grateful to them for their outstanding support,” said Brodeur. “We are making excellent use of their generous funding by allocating the $22,850 towards two areas. First a much needed Soundbeam 5, computer and Jamboxx and second, these funds will also enable VCM Music Therapists to reach out and help children in our schools who live and struggle with mental and/or physical difficulties as well as children with mental health challenges.” John Sargent (in memorium) for the Kay Dent Bursary Dr. A.
