Appeal for old or unwanted musical instruments

Do you have a musical instrument that you don't use anymore?


A violin gathering dust? A trumpet lying forgotten at the back of a cupboard? A flute hidden in the depths of the attic?

If so, you could get involved in "Instruments for Kids" and give a pupil from a school in Swansea the gift of music and your instrument a new lease of life.

Swansea Music Unit is taking part in the scheme and people can drop off instruments at the Lord Mayor's Reception Room at the Guildhall tomorrow (Wednesday) between 1pm and 7pm and on Thursday between 9am and 7pm.

Cllr Jennifer Raynor, Swansea Council's Cabinet Member for Children, Education and Young People, said: "People can donate instruments that they no longer need in the knowledge that they will be going to a good home and helping youngsters in Swansea who want to learn to play an instrument.

"When they are dropped off at the Guildhall they will be checked over and if necessary and practical repaired before being distributed to one of our schools in the new year.

"A pilot campaign was run in Cardiff earlier this year and we hope it will be similarly successful here in Swansea."
