Support your local community and Make Music Happen

Calling all schools in Scotland! Help us to Make Music Happen.

There are many people in Scotland, some of whom may be very close to your school, who have limited opportunities to enjoy live music because they are in a hospital, hospice or care home. You can help us to take live music to them.

If you and your school would like to make a difference to the lives of people in local hospitals, care homes, hospices, or other healthcare units – this is the scheme for you. Make Music Happen offers schools opportunities to have a real impact within their local community, to help raise awareness of the importance of quality of life factors for people in care and to collaborate as a team on a fundraising project.

The scheme is very simple:

  • your school chooses a local care unit(s)
  • pupils raise just £257 to fund one MiH concert. (More concerts can be arranged for a multiple of £257.)
  • Music in Hospitals arranges a live concert(s) at your chosen care unit and where possible, invites some school pupils to attend the concert too.

Call either Laura or Sarah at the MiH office (0131 556 5848) to get the ball rolling.

Read about what St Fergus School got up to when they helped to Make Music Happen.

The pupils appreciated the chance to see the musicians performing in the old people’s home. This helped them to make the link between raising money for charity and how those funds are actually spent. They all agreed that this was a good cause that the school should continue to try to support when it can.
