Top Fundraising Tips for Nordoff Robbins Scotland

Thank you for running for Nordoff Robbins Scotland, the largest music therapy charity in Scotland. We use music to help 1100 people every year who are isolated by disability, illness or mental health challenges. This is the difference you will help us to make:

“Music is an essential tool for K. The music enables her to communicate in ways which would be almost impossible – this builds on relationships and trust which helps K interact with her peers. Music is the EVERYTHING - always has been and always will be.”

£60 = a music therapy session for a child

£600 = a special school with a selection of instruments

£1600 = music therapy for a whole year

We are sure that you have some training ahead for the run and you may have even started already. Your fundraising is vital and we need you to do all you can to meet your sponsorship pledge. Here are some top tips to get you going.
