Making music for Nordoff Robbins Trust in Scotland

Making music for Nordoff Robbins Trust in Scotland

We admit that this article will be of little importance for anybody who is fortunate to be south of the Scottish border today, but for those of you who are stuck up north and maybe on an Easter break you could do something constructive.

Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy and local radio station 96.3 Rock Radio will be invading the Silverburn Shopping Centre today (Thursday 8th April) between 11am - 4pm asking shoppers to bring along their musical instruments.

The idea is that the racket caused by all the punters will raise awareness and cash for the local therapy centres which are located at Glasgow, Fife, Midlothian and Tayside.

The charity careers work at nearby hospices, homes, schools and day centres providing therapy to those who need it.

Donald MacLeod is the fundraising chairman who had this to say in regards to today’s fundraising event; "The joy that our therapists bring to those isolated from the world by illness or disability is incredible. I urge anyone who may have an old instrument gathering dust in a cupboard to bring it along. It will be put to great use and help our therapists carry out their unique work."

So, Scottish shoppers have two choices over the next few hours, either take along a musical instrument to the mall or purchase a decent pair of earplugs as soon as possible!
