Celebrate five years of Music Support with your very own Music Support Perfect Fifth fundraising event

The Perfect Fifth: in music terms, a root note and five notes above it, creating a perfect connection; some say the basis of harmony.

About Music Support

The music and live events industries have been hit hard by the uncertainty, fear, isolation and financial consequences of the pandemic. Music Support is a charity that provides help and support to those affected by mental ill-health and/or addiction. From musicians and DJ's to promoters and crew, the way back from the pandemic is still very unclear, meaning our services have never been more important.

Music Support provides peer-led support via our phone helpline, Mental Health First Aid Training, FREE access to wellbeing app, Thrive, signposting to a network of vetted and approved professionals and bespoke crisis support (such as backstage 'Safe hubs' at live events).

The Music Support Perfect Fifth

At the heart of Music Support and music is connection. We will celebrate our 5th birthday by bringing people together to form the perfect connection; the Perfect Fifth.

Celebrate with us by hosting your very own Music Support Perfect Fifth event / party / social, bringing your friends / family / colleagues / fans together to share your perfect music moments and raise vital funds to support our crucial efforts.

How it works:

1) Click on "start fundraising" above to create your Music Support Perfect Fifth JustGiving fundraising page

2) Invite your friends to make a suggested donation of £5 to come to your event

3) Host your event online or in person (depending on preference / covid restrictions) any time between Monday 10th May (coinciding with Mental Health Awareness Week) - Monday 31st May (for information on how to livestream your party via Justgiving visit Livestream with JustGiving )

You should theme your event around your Perfect Five. Feel free to be creative but here are some ideas to get you started:

- Perform five tracks live (originals, covers or a combination)

- Play five tracks (via Spotify or similar) from your favourite artist or music genre; that make you smile, dance, chill out to etc, chatting to your guests about what each means to you

- Invite your friends to submit THEIR favourite five tracks, make a playlist or mix and share together (adding a layer of competition by guessing who owns each track)

- Share your five favourite memories of working in the music / live events industry (including images, videos or tracks where relevant)
