Clive Burnage from @20 tells us how their initiatives help charities like Nordoff Robbins

"The @20 concept evolved from the meeting of like-minded musicians / music equipment addicts on a Facebook group. People from all over the country sell, buy and trade lots of equipment there and an idea formed around 18 months ago to put up an item in a ‘raffle’ whereby a number of people buy tickets, then once the market value of the item has been achieved, a name is drawn at random to determine the winner.

We have places!

Join team Nordoff Robbins in 2017 for the most stunning half marathon and raise money to help the change lives through music. The route takes in the capital’s world-famous landmarks on closed roads,  and four of London’s eight Royal Parks – Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens.

Music therapy started at St. Nicholas school for the first time earlier this year. Thanks to The Lord Leonard and Lady Estelle Wolfson Foundation, St. Nicholas School in Purley were introduced to a music therapy service from Nordoff Robbins. I had the exciting role of starting the service at the school, meeting the children and staff and informing the school about what music therapy is and how it can provide social and emotional wellbeing for children with Autism and special educational needs (SEN).

Our annual festive event played host to a number of celebrity guests last night who joined us to raise funds for Nordoff Robbins. 

To accompany their mince pies and mulled wine, guests were treated to carols by candlelight, with festive readings from supporters Dame Eileen Atkins, Jenna Coleman, Tom Hughes, Jeremy Clarkson, Sir Michael Gambon, Anneka Rice and Gillian Anderson, who stepped in to read on behalf of AA Gill, who sadly passed away last weekend.
