The Children’s Treatment Centre of Chatham-Kent’s Foundation said Lundy Insurance has recently donated $10,000 in support of the centre’s Music Therapy Program.

The program provides children and youth with special needs access to quality music programming, while developing their attention span, communication, motor and social skills through singing, playing instruments, song writing, listening and expressive movements. Music therapy is part of the CTC’s enhanced programs, along with adapted recreation and social work, which are covered under core government funding.

Enhanced programs, such as music Therapy, are essential in order for CTC clients to build their communication, motor and social skills and reach their full potential.

“When Lundy Insurance learned about the Butterfly Building Campaign, it was a unanimous decision in our office to donate to such a wonderful cause,” Dan Lundy of Lundy Insurance Inc., said in a release. “Our daughter Sydney has been a client of the CTC for the last six years. Sydney’s favourite program, music therapy, has made huge progress in her development, including communication skills, choice making, taking turns and acting as a form of expression for her. Lundy Insurance Inc. is extremely excited to help the CTC Foundation’s Butterfly Building Campaign reach their $6 million goal, just as the CTC has helped Sydney reach hers.”
