Music for Hope has now been running for 12 years; that’s 12 years of music and 12 years of empowering and inspirational activity for Salvadorean young people. Music for Hope has just had a cut in grant funding which could jeopardise the future of our activities. We need support in order to be able to survive.
There are plenty of ways you can get involved, using your own interests. Keen cyclists Duncan Bryson (pictured below) and Patrick Cox recently did their bit to support the project by organising a sponsored bike ride from Lands End to John O’Groats in 10 days, that’s around 100 miles a day!
Apparently there were gruelling moments, but the lads were powered up with hope! They raised more than £800 between them which is nearly enough to pay for one teacher for an entire year!
