A charity music group working with disabled and non-disabled youngsters is looking at a bright future thanks to a huge effort by local fundraisers.

The Inclusive Music Projects (IMPs), helps young people work together as equals to pick up new skills and celebrate abilities.

A donation of £800 from Pocklington Lions Club, a £2,500 grant from Music 4 U, £900 from the Ed De Nuzio Charitable Trust, £500 from the Market Weighton Community Shop and £173 from a charity bag pack at Tesco in Market Weighton this month have ensured the ground breaking project can carry on its good work.

Delma Tomlin, director of Music4U, said: “Music4U is delighted to be associated with this programme of musical excellence.

“Music4U has worked with over 30,000 young people under the age of 18 living in the Humber region over the past 10 years or so, thanks to funding from Youth Music and an ongoing partnership with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council and we are particularly pleased to be able to support these inspiring young musicians.”

Graham Gillyon, President of Pocklington District Lions added: “The Lions club members are so impressed by the enthusiasm, dedication and work achieved by IMPs and award £800 to the project to support the wonderful work of the IMPs team.

“We wish you good luck for the future and look forward to seeing you continue to make a difference in this fantastic way.”
