Singing out loud for acquired brain injury survivors

Front Page

St. Peter’s Male Voice Choir are holding a concert in conjunction with Cantus Wirena Choir from Germany on the 22nd of September at 8pm, in St Peter’s Church, West Street, Drogheda.

All proceeds from the night are going towards Acquired Brain Injury Ireland’s local service at “Lisrath” which is on the Ballymakenny Road who will be putting the money towards a wheelchair accessible vehicle for the residents.

Nobody ever thinks a brain injury will happen to them - yet it happens to 35 people in this country every day. Every year an estimated 13,000 people in Ireland acquire a brain injury resulting in life-altering, dramatic change. These injuries happen suddenly and are often traumatic, caused by road traffic accidents, stroke, assaults, falls, concussion and viral infections like meningitis.

“Early access to personalised community rehabilitation services like Acquired Brain Injury Ireland's is vital to ensure brain injury survivors can start to rebuild their functional, behavioural or cognitive skills at home after they leave hospital” Lisrath Team Leader Kate Leonard told Drogheda LIfe.

“The extra support we receive from events like this held by St Peters Male Voice Choir, can really make our service a ‘home from home’ for brain injury survivors while they are with us and help us expand our services to more families”.

Tickets (€20, no booking fee) are now available in the Westcourt Hotel and St. Peter's Church Sacristy West Street. You can also book tickets using your credit card by phoning 041 982 9124.
