FIFTY GIGS IN A DAY 2020 RAISES OVER £90 FOR NORDOFF ROBBINS

The total raised was £98.20, made up of £5 donation, £30 raised by Biscuithead & the Badgers at their gig and the rest was raised via eBay from signed items/tickets kindly donated by Ed Byrne, Billy Lockett & Paul Carrack.

Not as much raised as in 2019, however the social media activity was higher this year, which was great to see as the aim of Fifty Gigs In A Day has always been to raise awareness of the Nordoff Robbins charity and music therapy in general. Any funds raised has always been a welcome bonus!

It was going to be the last Fifty Gigs this year, however it is always heartening to see the artists & bands helping spread the word. I will have a look to see if a series of gigs throughout the year plugging the work of Nordoff Robbins, coupled with the annual day of Fifty Gigs on February 8 could work better.

Any suggestions on how to improve and/or gain more exposure for the event are more than welcome. Please get in touch via the contact page.

Still to come…

Dandelion Charm have a gig supporting the Emerald Dawn in Brighton on March 23, full details can be found here

Also Milton Hide play the Stag Inn on February 16

ABOUT NORDOFF ROBBINS

  • Nordoff Robbins is the largest independent music therapy charity in the UK, dedicated to changing the lives of vulnerable and isolated people. We support thousands of people in our own centres and by working in partnership with a wide range of organisations including care homes, schools and hospitals. When delivered by a trained practitioner, music therapy can be used to support people living with a wide range of needs. It can help a child with autism to communicate, reduce anxiety for those living with dementia or provide comfort and celebrate the life of someone facing terminal illness. Music therapy can be life-changing for so many people. https://www.nordoff-robbins.org.uk/about-us/
  • Nordoff Robbins Registered Charity Number: 280960

    £3-£10 could pay for a music instrument, giving a client with autism a way to express themselves beyond words
    £20 could pay for a vulnerable child to attend a group music therapy session
    £35 could pay for a one-to-one session of life transforming music therapy for someone with dementia
    £50 could help us bring comfort and joy to a child suffering from a brain injury during a one-to-one music therapy session
