Share a Song to Belong with Make Some Noise this December!

Local music charity Make Some Noise is inviting people of all ages to Share a Song to Belong with them this December as part of its annual fundraising Campaign.

Childhood trauma affects a young person’s sense of identity and through its inspiring programme of free music making workshops and performances Make Some Noise recognises the healing power of music and the sense of belonging music can bring.

Singing releases feel-good endorphins, making music reduces stress and anxiety, writing lyrics helps express feelings and playing music together widens friendship circles. Make Some Noise workshops allow children and young people to do this, whilst having fun, which is an essential part of childhood.

In order to continue to provide free services and support for children and young people with learning needs, disabilities and mental health issues across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent, Make Some Noise is aiming to raise well needed funds through this appeal which runs from 14 – 20 December 2020.

Tim Sharp, Chief Executive Officer for Make Some Noise said:

“Make Some Noise would love to hear from anyone who believes that music is a great way to help children cope with traumatic experiences. You don’t have to be a professional musician or singer to take part. Local bands or choirs or anyone who just loves music, enjoys playing an instrument or singing along to their favourite tune! Please join our growing number of Musical Heroes who are choosing Make Some Noise as their charity this Christmas and fundraising towards our £3000 target. This year, we anticipate reaching over 250,000 people, so why not gather a few friends around and take to the virtual stage, all for a good cause?”

To get involved and be a Musical Hero, just record a song, perform it on social media, tag us in and don’t forget to add our justgiving link for those supporting you doing a great and wonderful thing, it was has been such a challenging year!
