RMTC Reaches $50,575 Target Share of the Trusts Million Dollar Mission Fund
We've done it in only 24 days! Thank you to every one of you for your votes, support and updates on our progress during the campaign. We couldn't have done it without you.
From a pool of 130 applications, we were selected as one of 30 organisations to receive a share of $1,000,000 from the Trusts Million Dollar Mission. Our request was for $50,575 to help us to continue to provide our Outreach programmes in our West Auckland schools and Titirangi Community Centre, for the next twelve months. And at around midday on Friday March 25, the final vote was cast to reach our target.
R2R December Workshop
Earlier this month we welcomed Counsellor Simon Faulkner to the Centre to share with the team the Rhythm to Recovery Method. Based in Australia Simon uses drumming and other rhythmic based exercises to assist with social and emotional learning and recovery from trauma. RMTC staff and volunteers, along with other Music Therapists from the Auckland region, joined Simon for a two hour drumming workshop. The drumming circle was not only enjoyable for all involved but also highly informative, touching, and practical and the team is looking forward to incorporating these interventions and methods into their future sessions.
