Wirksworth’s Music Lessons Fund

Wirksworth’s Music Lessons fund is run by a group of trustees who are enthusiastic supporters of music for young people.

They believe music provides an enriching, life-long experience and that all young people should have an equal chance to play a musical instrument and should not be excluded through financial hardship.

Who does the fund support?
The fund supports young people whose families have difficulty funding their music lessons.

The young people, aged 5 – 18, will have their music lessons in Wirksworth and nearby villages.

To find out more about how to apply for funds, please contact Jenny Acons, the fund’s coordinator at wmcentre@hotmail.co.uk.
All requests for funds are dealt with discreetly.

How is the fund financed?
The fund is financed through:

  • Donations from local people, community groups, businesses and charities including the Anthony Gell Foundation and Wirksworth and District Trust Fund.
  • Proceeds from concerts and other events.
  • Grants from charitable organisations such as Children in Need.
