Business supports music making for Shropshire charity
Clickingmad, Shropshire’s premier website development agency, has recently agreed to sponsor Discovery Days and Riffs workshops run by Shropshire charity SYMPHO, the charitable wing of Shropshire Music Service.
Shropshire Music Service helps over 5,000 Shropshire children learn to play musical instruments, from percussion through guitars to orchestral instruments. It provides schools, parents and guardians with experienced music teaching right across the county.
Shaun Carvill the MD of Clickingmad is a keen musician and vocalist and is well known in Shropshire for performing in musicals and charity concerts.
Shaun said: “I wanted Clickingmad to help Shropshire children get the tremendous joy from learning to play an instrument that I have had through my life and to remind ourselves that music has been proven to help with children’s self-confidence, concentration and mental health, as well as giving kids a lifelong skill.
“We jumped at the chance of supporting a very worthy cause and our contribution has helped budding musicians and singers receive professional tuition and taster days free of charge,” he said.
Dr Sarah Browne, head of Shropshire Music Service said:
“The fantastic contribution by Shaun and Clickingmad has enabled us to widen our training and the experiences of learning to play an instrument to hundreds more children across Shropshire.
We are extremely grateful and hope that other businesses will help us reach even more Shropshire Children.”
