Welcome to the Lindsay Dawkes Fund for Musical Development website.
The Fund is a registered Charity: No. 1128550.
It aims to provide musical instruments for a wide range of projects involving children in local education.
Established in the Summer of 2007 by family and friends of Lindsay, the Fund's sole aim is to raise money to aid musical development..
The opportunity for children to experience and enjoy instrumental music was a major factor in Lindsay's life and work.
We wish to carry on this good work and provide instrumental music to many youngsters in local education. Throughout 2007 and 2008, there will be fund raising events of various types taking place, please keep visiting the website for specific details. This will culminate in a focal event taking place early in the Summer of 2008.
With money raised from the events, the Fund will be able to supply musical instruments to local education projects.
The aim will be to provide instruments for youngsters to experience and enjoy all the aspects music making has to offer.
The events will continue throughout the coming years and as such the Fund will grow and be able offer instruments for many more projects.
As with any Fund of this type it relies on the kind donations and support of the general community.
We feel passionate about this cause as did Lindsay, between us all we can make a difference.
At this time much research is now linking instrumental music to improved results and behaviour, hopefully we can all strive to offer musical opportunities to today's youngsters.
