Haven House children's hospice in Woodford Green receives £41,150 grant
A children’s hospice received a £41,150 grant from the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
Haven House, in High Road, Woodford Green, will use the money to create a music therapy room, to be named the Amy Winehouse Foundation Music Room, in its new annex.
Chief Executive of Haven House, Mike Palfreman, said: “Opening a new music therapy room in our hospice, thanks to the foundation’s support, will bring sound and music to the lives of our children who find it incredibly difficult to communicate and connect verbally with their families.
“We are delighted that Amy will be remembered by creating special memories with our families through the power of music.”
Amy’s father Mitch Winehouse, the chair of the Amy Winehouse Foundation, said: “It is truly humbling meeting the dedicated people who provide essential support to youngsters and wonderful to be able to help them.
“Amy’s name lives on through this work and we are especially pleased that music, something Amy loved, can be of great benefit to others.”
