Soundabout Christmas Hearts Appeal

Keep Soundabout's heart beating this Christmas

At Soundabout our mission is to ensure that people with severe and profound learning disabilities can connect to the world through music. Our starting point is the heartbeat, the rhythm of life which which gives our participants a structure for their musical journeys.

This Christmas, we urgently need your help to keep Soundabout’s heartbeat going. After a very difficult financial year, which has seen the charity’s fundraised income drop as a result of the ongoing impacts of COVID-19, we need your support more than ever.

We have had to significantly reduce our weekly interactive and multi-sensory online music sessions for people with severe and profound learning disabilities, which families tell us have been a lifeline through the pandemic and beyond. We hope that this is a temporary measure and with your help we can get them up and running again.

Christmas Appeal Target

We need to raise £30,000 this Christmas in order to keep Soundabout’s heartbeat going. Could you make a one off or regular donation to support our appeal?

Every time we reach £120 we’re able to run another online session for people with severe and profound learning disabilities. Can you “sponsor a session” by donating £120? You will receive an optional verbal “thank you” and mention in the blurb at the start of an online session.
