A huge well done and thank you to members of our groups who played Christmas carols to the public at the Nicholson Centre in Maidenhead on December 7th, 2019
I’m thrilled to say in the hour we were playing we raised over £100 for Brass for Africa!!
In partnership with Mango Tree, an African-led curriculum specialist, Brass for Africa have designed a tailored programme that integrates music education with life-skills training. Working with over 1,000 children and young people twice a week, Brass for Africa deliver lessons, workshops and performance opportunities to over 20 outreach partners.
Their teachers are alumni of the programmes themselves and, being from the same backgrounds as our participants, they are uniquely qualified to understand the difficulties they face. All the Brass for Africa local staff receive a monthly salary with private health-care access as well as personal and professional development support.
Thank you everyone and we wish you a Merry Christmas :)
