The Lowde Music Trust has a clear objective: to aid in the relief of sickness and the preservation of health amoung young people.
It achieves this aim by providing direct financial support for the use of music as therapy, by supporting other charitable organisations through financial means and by providing facilities, support services and equipment not normally provided by the statutory authorities.
Over the past 6 years the Trust has been working on a programme that will bring music to the bedside of some of the country’s most poorly children.
This has been realised through investing in projects with organisations like Naomi House and Jacks Place (hospices providing expert hospice care to more than 325 life-limited and life-threatened children, young people and their extended families from Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, Berkshire, West Sussex , Surrey and the Isle of White).
Plus a major programme has been introduced with Radio Lollipop (which provides care, comfort, play and entertainment for sick children in hospitals, across the country including Great Ormond Street).
One of the projects that has been on trial in Edinburgh involves providing children in hospital an electronic tablet for use while they are in hospital. This has proven to have fantastic results and now LMT is looking to roll this project out across the UK, which is why we need your help.
