Presentation - SYLO Group

Christine Archer-Lockwood, Dot Sutherland and Don Allomes made a presentation to the Committee regarding Sing Your Lungs Out (SYLO). 

SYLO is group singing for people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and other chronic lung disease.  Singing encourages healthy breathing patterns and is beneficial for general health and wellbeing, but particularly helpful for those with any type of breathing difficulty.  People are referred to SYLO by doctors, through respiratory clinics and word of mouth.

Christine, a music therapist, advised SYLO has been in operation since October 2017.  Start-up funding was provided by the Lion’s Club and she recently received a grant from the Olive Tree Foundation.  The balance of funding for SYLO has been provided out of her own pocket.

Elected Members thanked Christine for her presentation and suggested thought be given to the best way for Council to support groups like SYLO who may not qualify for the types of funding currently available.

 

Moved Rachel Bowen, seconded Susan Baty.
