    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    On the 1st December 2018 we are going to be doing a Bike Ride from Edinburgh to Glasgow to help raise money for "Brass for Africa". This is an amazing charity that sends Brass instruments and tuition to under-privileged parts of Africa.

    Uganda and Liberia are some of the poorest countries in the world, over 1/3 of their population is living below the international poverty line. As a result, more than half of these countries children live in vulnerable situations: they are orphans, or children living in a household headed by another child; they are homeless and living on the street; they are child labourers; they are girls who are mothers before they’ve had a chance to grow up.

    Brass for Africa uses music as a tool to empower and transform the lives of more than 1000 extremely disadvantaged, and often disabled children and young people in Uganda and Liberia every week. Working with local organisations, we provide weekly brass music education alongside performance opportunities and life skills training to young people from orphanages, slums, and rehabilitation centres.

    Any money that you would be willing to give to support this amazing charity would be hugely appreciated, not by just us, but by the people who run the charity and the hundreds of children who would benefit from music education.
