Soundwell invites you to run in the Bath Half 2017 for us, and help us transform the lives of adults whose lives have been seriously affected by mental illness.

Soundwell is the only specialist adult mental health music therapy charity in the UK. Soundwell provides an inclusive and accessible music therapy service and music support groups for vulnerable and isolated adults, especially targeting people with multiple disadvantage from under-served and seldom heard groups. We work across the South West and in particular: Wiltshire, Bath & NE Somerset, North Somerset and Swindon. We help people at times when their lives are seriously affected by mental illnesses and complex needs and we also support unpaid carers, who often experience stress and depression.

Music has the amazing ability to reach us all, affecting us both physically and emotionally. It can communicate where words fail, give people hope, increase self esteem and build confidence. Our experienced music therapists provide a community based service where individuals come together to create sounds and music using a wide range of instruments from around the world.

Our music therapy programmes bring about extraordinary changes and the experience can be truly life transforming. We run 170 music therapy group sessions and over 200 individual sessions per year.

Be a part of ‘Team Soundwell’ and help us to reach more people in distress!

Runners will be asked to commit to raising a target minimum of £175 and will get lots of support and encouragement from us. Soundwell is subsidising the entry fee for ‘Team Soundwell’ runners,  making registration just £25. We are very happy to help with further subsidy if needed. It is first come, first served so if you are feeling the urge to run do let me know as soon as you can!
