Drop off unwanted instruments for charity

Have your say

DROP off your unwanted musical instruments at a charity shop to help children in need.

Oxfam Books and Music Shop in Fareham is taking part in the biggest-ever amnesty – and is asking the public to donate their unwanted musical instruments to school children who are keen to learn but don’t have the resources to do so.

The campaign was launched by classical pianist James Rhodes as part of Channel 4 series Don’t Stop the Music.

Mr Rhodes said: ‘Giving a child a musical instrument that they can call their own is one of the most extraordinary and powerful things that one can do. This amnesty gives people the chance to make a real difference.’

Shop manager Christine Chapman said: ‘Your instrument could help inspire a new generation of musicians who can use their talent to make great things happen.’

People can drop their instruments off at Oxfam Books & Music, in West Street, Fareham.
