To celebrate their 20th birthday in July, local music charity Make Some Noise is set to launch a Crowdfunding campaign Song for Wellbeing on Friday 14 May to support young people following the impact of the coronavirus pandemic across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.
Make Some Noise is a dedicated music charity run by a small expert team bringing high quality, vibrant music opportunities to communities across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent. During its 20 years Make Some Noise has delivered over 120 free community music projects across deprived areas in Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent, engaging more than 50,000 children, young people and families. Groups include children in care, with special needs and disabilities and children who have poor access to music activities.
Partnering with organisations including Staffordshire County Council, Stoke-on-Trent City Council, Tamworth Arts & Events and Stafford Music Festival, Make Some Noise strives through their work to reduce isolation, build confidence, skills and increase wellbeing. This is particularly relevant in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic when mental health and wellbeing needs are at an all-time high.
Make Some Noise are creating the Song for Wellbeing crowdfunding fundraising campaign to help support local young people as they recover from lockdown and celebrate their talent. With funds raised Make Some Noise will produce a Song for Wellbeing Journal to be distributed to over 1000 local young people (aged 12-18). In addition, the charity will provide access to its online song-writing tutorials and opportunities to submit songs for the Make Some Noise 20th anniversary commemorative album featuring original compositions from local singers/songwriters.
Chair of Make Some Noise Nigel Senior commented: ‘We are very excited about the upcoming Song for Wellbeing campaign and really aim to make a difference to local young people’s creativity and wellbeing. This is a very difficult time for many young people and we want to do our bit to support them as they recover from the past year. We are also hoping to unearth some budding local songwriters who will be able to take part in our anniversary album with their compositions! Please support our campaign as generously as you can.’
The Song for Wellbeing crowdfunding campaign launches from Friday 14th May and welcomes donations. www.crowdfunder.co.uk/song-for-wellbeing
