A BRIGHTON group is urging residents to support it in the Charity Today Awards Disability Charity of the Year.

Rhythmix has reached the national final, and the deadline to vote for it is 11am on Friday.

The nomination for this award is in recognition of the work it does with children and young people with disabilities.

From children’s wards, hospitals, specialist units and hospices to special school, inclusive clubs and holiday activities, Rhythmix helps young people with disabilities make music.

Alastair Beddow, chair of Trustees at Rhythmix, said: “ This nomination represents a strong endorsement of the impact of the work Rhythmix is doing to enrich the wellbeing of people across the South East.

“We do this through music, particularly for those with dementia, long-term health issues and disabilities, as well as our efforts to influence the national policy agenda about arts in healthcare settings.

“The Charity Today Awards nomination couldn’t have been possible without the hard work and dedication of all of our staff and supporters.

“We take music to places people don’t expect to see or hear it. “
