Donate instruments/music/books

We welcome donations of instruments, sheet music and music books, so we can send these to the pupils at Starehe and at Coulson School in Gilgil, Kenya, who have very limited musical resources. 

A collection of brass instruments kindly donated by Bollington Brass Band, All Hallows High School, Macclesfield and Rainsford Brass Band from Wigan along with accessories to maintain them has arrived at Oxford High School in Uganda. This is a new school supported by Starehe that has made a priority of developing a marching band to create esprit de cour among the students and serve the wider community. 

If you are able to help with musical donations, please contact any Trustee or email andy.donaldson@mdmt.org.uk
