The Rotary Club of Royston has donated £1,000 to a North Herts hospice.

Garden House Hospice Care has been raising funds for music therapy, and Rotary was keen to support the venture.

Kash Sharma, chair of community service for the club, said: “We frequently support the Garden House Hospice care as a deserving local charity and so we are very pleased to be able to help this wonderful initiative.”

GHHC’s Lisa Seccombe said: “We appreciate the continual support we get from the Rotary Club of Royston and are grateful for their support of our music therapy sessions, which have been demonstrated to significantly benefit our patients.

“Our qualified music therapist provides music therapy sessions for patients, who can choose to play instruments, sing or simply listen to a piece of music.”
