Our work relies on a range of schools, funders and supporters who share our vision. Without the generosity of these people our Programmes would not be possible. All donations received go towards growing our reach to children in the most disadvantaged areas of Yorkshire. We are committed to supporting wellbeing through music and enriching the communities in which we work.

Our morning sessions fill the school with beautiful singing that uplift all who hear it. The difference that has been made to the quality of the children’s singing, self-esteem and confidence is immeasurable.’

Headteacher, Leeds
