Danny loves drumming - 'It helps me get out all my stress and I feel proud when I learn new rhythms and play along with other people'.

Learning an instrument helps children develop confidence, find a new passion and boosts their happiness levels. But not all families can afford to pay for lessons so we want to help Severn Arts raise money for its Severn Arts Awards Scheme - Raise21in21 - this Summer!

In the first lockdown, we started running together - this is a photo of us half way through a run in beautiful Worcester. So we'd like to explore new running routes. We're going to run 21 miles over 21 different routes this Summer.

Please make a donation and help more young people start their exciting music-making journey! Debbie Birch
