Earlier this month our supporter Anne Fraser in East Lothian opened up her house to share her ‘Crafty Creations’ with the community. The exhibition showcased her design talents and incredibly creative ideas for using items which might otherwise get thrown away. She raised an incredible £1,061.43 from donations and sales of items during the week.
Anne said: “I have had a few families with little children come and enjoy it and also an older gentleman who said he had been feeling quite lonely. He said the display brought a smile to his face. If I can make people happy and also raise some money for charity then that is fantastic.”
Anne saw our work in action when volunteering at the Longniddry Wednesday Club, who we share live music with regularly, and wanted to fundraise to help us to share live music with more people.
Anne said: “I think carers are so important in society. The charity is a win win because it offers music to the patients which helps them in a way that no pill ever can. And for the carers it is a chance to enjoy some music too with their patient and bring them some joy.”
Here are some examples of her wit and creativity. We are particularly taken with the Bananarama collage! Thank you to Anne and everyone who came along to support her exhibition!
If you have a creative idea for fundraising, please message us, and we will support you to help share live music with people who may not otherwise get to experience it.
Please give today to help improve the health and wellbeing of children and adults through the healing power of live music.
