‘I love singing and music because it is great for my physical and mental wellbeing and because of the positive effect that it has on me and people around me. I offered to co-deliver a Singing for Wellbeing course for the Recovery College because I believe in the transformative power of music and song.’ - Myra Whiskar, C&I Induction and Core Skills Manager.
