Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails.

We are raising money to support the Wolverhampton Music Service, who provide music instruction to 6000 school children in the Wolverhampton area and provide 4000 instruments free of charge. Children can join one of 15 ensembles, including orchestral, rock and pop, dhol drums and vocal. Each year the Friends provide funds to subsidise the annual european tour. This allows children from low income families to travel to Spain or Italy with the youth orchestra they have trained with. This year the friends donated £10000 for this, and we are now raising funds to do the same next year.

We, The Friends, support The Wolverhampton Music Service who offer high quality instrumental and vocal teaching provided in school by their team of experienced music teachers. Out of school, they support children’s learning by providing a network of FREE ensembles and a substantial calendar of events and opportunities. They provide weekly tuition on over 30 different instruments, along with the long term free loan of a musical instrument. The leadership team regularly offer guidance and support to schools on contracting with parents or subsidising the cost of lessons in school.
