Welcome to Being Heard Music Group
…and their Creative Musical Film… A Tea With Two Sugars
The Being Heard Music Group at Cerebral Palsy Midlands (CPM) has written and produced a musical film called “A Tea with Two Sugars” with the help of Musical Director and tutor Richard Ganner and Director Craig Keogh.
The film is a celebration of diversity and inclusion, and it tells the stories of the group members’ unique experiences living with cerebral palsy. The film was made possible by a £10,000 grant from the National Lottery ‘Awards for All’ Community Fund, awhich was granted at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Group members worked together remotely using Zoom in the very beginning but the project really got momentum when our services re-opened fully. The film is a testament to the resilience and creativity of the Being Heard Music Group, and it is a powerful message of hope and empowerment.
We are thrilled to announce that our film 'Tea With Two Sugars,' created by our very own Being Heard Music Group, has made it to the finals of the Smiley Charity Film Awards! Help us bring home the 'Peoples Choice' Award by voting for our film. It only takes a few seconds, and every vote counts!
This film is a powerful representation of the incredible work we do at Cerebral Palsy Midlands. It showcases the talents and abilities of our members and highlights the importance of inclusivity and equality.
