Awards for Young Musicians aims to raise £60,000 in the Big Give Christmas Challenge4:12, 27th November 2018
UK charity Awards for Young Musicians (AYM) aims to raise £60,000 for young musicians in this year’s Big Give Christmas Challenge.
The challenge is the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign, which doubles donations made via the Big Give website from 27 November until 4 December.
It is hoped that the money raised will fund 120 of the charity’s awards, which give young musicians from low-income families access to funding for music lessons, instruments and transport to lessons and performances.
AYM celebrated its 20th anniversary earlier this year, with the release of 20 short films following the stories of musicians, including Jess Gillam and Jennifer Pike, whose lives have been transformed by music education.
