At a time when mental health and wellbeing issues amongst children are going through the roof, we want to help them recover.
“I really don’t think I’d be here if it wasn’t for you guys. You’re my lockdown legends.”D (participant aged 18)
We’re half way there!! 😃 Together, we can help over 1000 local children affected by mental health and wellbeing issues as a result of the pandemic, by sending them their very own Songwriting for Wellbeing Journal. A practical journal packed with fun, creative, and supportive mindfulness tips.
Watch Helena’s message below and then make sure you follow us on your favourite social media channel (Facebook Twitter Instagram LinkedIn) and tune in to our Christmas #SongtoBelong gigs between 17th & 24th Dec.
Local musicians will perform during the campaign, which runs from 17-24 December 2021, on the charity’s social media platforms, encouraging people to tune in and donate to help the Make Some Noise reach their £4000 target.
Make Some Noise is a charity based in Stafford, Staffordshire, that delivers an engaging and diverse programme of music activities to benefit children and young people from some of Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent’s most deprived communities.
Tim Sharp, CEO for Make Some Noise said: “Please join our growing number of fundraisers who are choosing Make Some Noise as their charity this Christmas and helping us reach our £4000 target! Music reduces stress and anxiety, writing lyrics helps express feelings and playing music together widens friendship circles. By enabling children to express themselves through creating their own music, we can help them to cope as they emerge from the incredibly challenging experience of surviving a global crisis.”
Tim continues: “Make Some Noise is so close to reaching our target of 1000 journals. We can’t wait to post them out to children we support who have special education needs and disabilities, fostered, in care, young carers and living in poverty.”
