North Yorkshire Music Therapy Centre

District Donation to the North Yorkshire Music Therapy Centre. At the regular meeting of Ryedale 138 held on 29th April, the Council hosted a presentation by Dr Caroline Hall on the work carried by the centre.  Prior to her talk, she received a cheque for £400.00 from the District Grand Prefect on behalf of the District.  With Dr Hall as an honoured guest at the Festive Board, attending Ryedale members, plus members of the District Team, raised a further £115.00 in the raffle as a further donation to the charity.  It was a good evening for the Doctor, she managed to claim a bottle of gin as a prize!  For a photograph of the District Grand Prefect with Dr Hall and the WM of Ryedale 138, click here.
