You have until 24 December to suggest an individual, community group or a charity that deserves to receive such a gift. It could be someone who has positively contributed to society during the epidemic – a doctor, a nurse or care worker – a parent who has coped and helped others, a teacher, someone who has been unwell, a sponsor who has gone above and beyond or a community group or charity who would benefit from brand new instruments.
The gifts, including brand new Fender guitars to Yamaha keyboards, have been organised by Absolute Music’s commercial director, Jamie Clayton, who said, “The global brands who we supply in our superstore have been so keen to support the community and our own charity. The stock amounts to thousands of pounds and we are delighted to give it all away to people who deserve recognition and something special this Christmas. Anyone can nominate as we hope to get an influx of suggestions and the winners will be contacted during the holidays.”
The Absolute Music Trust is a charity delivering music workshops for those less fortunate, including children with severe learning disabilities, people struggling with addiction, teenagers coping with anxiety and low income families.
Alan Barclay, managing director of Absolute Music and CEO of the charity, said, “It has been a tough year for so many and our music projects have had to stop due to the lockdowns. We are hoping for a busy year in 2021 where we will continue our mission to enrich lives through music. We are grateful to our suppliers who have been generous in donating such amazing gifts.”
The Absolute Music Trust also provides music lessons in schools, encouraging the arts to remain in education.
The gifts include two drum kits from Natal and Roland, 12 ukuleles from Brunswick, four guitars from Fender and nine keyboards from Yamaha. Nominations can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the person/organisation, the gift(s) you would like them to receive and why you think they deserve recognition.
