Award for music students

Music students from Glasgow Clyde College were rewarded recently for their voluntary work with Southview Care Home in Cambuslang.

Owners of the care home, Thistle Healthcare, awarded the students a Partnership Working Award for the music therapy they had been carrying out with the home’s residents.

Director of Music at Glasgow Clyde College, Alan Craig, said; “The project began last year and two of our students Iain Gordon-Smith and Stella Murray keep it going throughout the last session.

“Music therapy has proved hugely effective and the residents have truly benefited from the interaction with the students. It has been a very humbling experience for everyone involved and I’m delighted Iain and Stella have been rewarded for their hard work.”

The students have now been entered into the national Thistle Healthcare Partnership Working Awards. Due to the overwhelming success of the music therapy project, it will continue with this year's HND students.
