Music in the garden to brighten the Day for Westgate Daycare Clients

On Monday September 28th musicians from Music in the Community (MIC) partnered with Staff of Westgate Foundation to bring wonderful music to clients’ homes. Five wonderfully talented musicians Majella Cullagh, Adrian, Joe, Keeva and Aoifa travelled to the home of three of our clients to entertain them with music and song. Mary Donnelly and Orlagh Greene from Westgate Daycare Centre went along also to see our much missed clients and to ensure that all social distancing and safety measures were in place to make it a safe event for everyone. Our clients expressed great appreciation for the visit and it brought a much needed lift to everyone’s spirits after the many months of being confined to home and not being able to attend our Daycare Centre. We hope that this will be the first of many more Music in the Garden visits to our clients.
