John Reed is our friendly "Story Teller Fella" and comes into our centre at Cerebral Palsy Midlands once a month with a musical story and brings it to life. We have had the stories about ABBA, The Beatles, Freddie Mercury, Chaz'n'Dave and many more. He has a keen fan club of people interested in what he has to say here at CPM. John says: "As an experienced story teller, I mix music with stories to produce an interesting, funny and entertaining time for my audience. The delivery of this concept is a very good way of reducing loneliness and social isolation. This results in a reduction in stress levels, and an increase in general well being." You can come find John here at our centre for a relaxing and restful time, where you will be immersed in memories, stories, pictures and memorabilia. Below are his up and coming dates and times.
