Music foundation appeals for donations
Donations from members of the public could help one charity afford to buy instruments and take outmusical insurance for the benefit of children in Scotland.
The Perth and Kinross Music Foundation is asking for help from the local community to fund its work, the Perthshire Advertiser reports.
Founded in 1997, the organisation has taught 75 kids since it launched and it is hoping to continue to educate youngsters in the art of music.
Chairperson Sigurd Scott said: “Playing a musical instrument lets children grow in confidence as individuals, learn self-discipline and life-enhancing skills and, above all, experience the sheer joy of making music.”
However, he warned that without help from the public the foundation will no longer be able to give financial aid to young musicians.
Families on low income and in receipt of working tax credits are invited to apply to see if they are eligible for assistance.
