Wish -17 Gift of music update (get your tissues ready)

Wish 17- Give the gift of music

2 people have kindly given the gift of music for My 30 Wishes.

Amy kindly donated her piano to a local child who can now learn to play. The piano wasn't an unwanted item in Amy's house, it's just Amy has been far to ill with severe M.E to play for years. Letting go of such an item is a big thing, thank you Amy.

The other update was Sue made a donation to Sistema England so a child could learn to play. Sistema sent an email thanking us and explaining what a difference learning an instrument can make to a child, they work with children in some of the poorest parts of London. It was lovely to think of a child being helped but then we got this email and photograph which made us rather misty eyed!

"Dear Vikki

I hope you have been feeling better. I wanted to send you this photo of
Hadassa, aged 3. She is the girl that received the cello purchased by
Sistema England thanks to a generous donation from Sue Morgan in your
name. Hadassa desperately wanted to learn the cello as an older friend of
hers is already a very good cellist. Because of the donation made in your
name, she now has her own cello and has joined The Nucleo Project in
London, which she attends 4 afternoons a week.

Again many thanks for your kindness, and may you always have the strength
to carry on with your kind and generous initiatives.

Best wishes and happy holidays,

  1. How lovely!
    Music can be so inspirational, and a huge comfort during difficult times. The Nucleo Project's philosophy is spot on.
    Enjoy your cello, Hadassa, and have lots of fun :-)
    Best wishes, Lara
