Story

The Howdenshire Music Project is a non-profit voluntary community group which organises a series of free lunchtime concerts in Howden Minster. We are passionate about making music accessible to everyone in our community - especially schools, young people and people who are retired.

Our current piano, which has been loaned to the project and is used in nearly every concert, is over 100 years old! Sadly its condition is deteriorating rapidly. We've been advised by our piano technician that our best option is to purchase a new high quality instrument which will serve the local community for decades to come. A new grand piano, based in Howden Minster, will be a vital community resource - we envision that it will be regularly used by many community groups, musicians, school groups and young people, as well as securing the future of the lunchtime concert series and allowing other exciting musical events to take place. Currently there is no such instrument in a community venue anywhere within 20 miles of Howden.

Previous lunchtime concerts have featured outstanding musicians from all over the UK and the concert series has a loyal audience who look forward to each new performance. Not only does music have the power to enrich and transform people's lives - concerts also bring us all together for a wonderful shared experience. For people who may be feeling isolated, they can be a social lifeline. Many new friendships have been made over a cup of coffee and a chat at one of our events, and we would love for this to be able to continue.

The Howdenshire Music Project depends on audience support and donations for its work to keep going. Unless we can raise the funds to purchase a new piano, unfortunately our concerts and work to make music accessible for everyone in the community will not be able to continue in the future.

Please donate to this appeal and secure the future of free concerts and access to music for the community of Howden and the surrounding area.

Thank you for reading.

    A huge thank you to everyone who has donated to the Howdenshire Piano Appeal so far. We are so grateful for your continuing support and help towards raising the money for a new community piano. The Piano Fund currently stands at £3,500 (a mixture of JustGiving and direct donations)... so we are just over 20% of the way to our £15,000 target!
