Help Musicians UK - one month on

Exactly one month ago, we became Help Musicians UK.

625 new Facebook likes, 310 more followers, 231 Emerging Excellence applications and 41 Help and Advice applications later, we can report that our mission to reach more musicians across the UK than ever is very much under way.

Even better than the statistics is your support.

Since Monday 13 January, you've been tweeting, posting, emailing, writing and calling us and the response has been overwhelming.

Here's what you had to say:

These guys helped me out immensely when I was ill, check out their new website! @HelpMusiciansUK #HelpMusiciansUK

“I'd just like to express my thanks and appreciation for the way in which you have sensitively supported my daughter during a period of time in which she has been seriously ill and in some financial difficulty as a result. Sending her a birthday card and an extra donation was a particularly humane touch which was really appreciated.”

“Keep up the good work ! Music brings so much joy to so many people.”

“Congratulations on the new identity - very natty ;)”

“I want to sincerely thank you for everything you have done for me and my family so far.”

"I couldn't have survived without them when I got a brain injury following a horse riding accident in September 2012. They have been incredibly generous and still are as I'm not back to full time teaching and playing yet."

"Thank-you for your invaluable help when my husband had to stop playing the horn. Terrible times for us but couldn't have survived without you."

 

Keep letting us know your thoughts and please help us spread the word to musicians and music lovers.

Here's to the next 93 years!
