My colleague Frances Bernstein, Coordinator, Music Centres and CLYM Groups, with Artforms contacted me...

"Hi Chris, Re your blog about the meeting with the Minister of Education from Kwazulu Natal.
You might be interested to know that, following their visit to Durban last year, the Leeds Youth Jazz & Rock Orchestra are raising money to buy instruments for a township arts centre - during their visit they turned up to do a workshop for young people there and found they had virtually no instruments with which to work. Our young musicians have already raised over £1,600, and rising, by performing locally and attracting business sponsors. Anyone wanting to add their support could contact me. Frances"

This is another of those great causes and anyone with spare instruments or spare cash or who simply wants to help should contact Frances at the West Park Centre.
