Support primary schools with your old instruments - Don’t Stop The Music
Have you been watching Channel 4’s Don’t Stop The Music? The final show is tonight, but the good news is you can still take part in the instrument amnesty right up until 17 October. Just drop yours off at your local Oxfam shop and the Don’t Stop The Music team will make sure your musical instrument gets to a primary school that needs it. Please REBLOG this post to help spread the word.
All this week we’ll be focusing on poverty and inequality close to home.
Cruel Britannia is overseeing an increasingly divided nation if you take into account the lifestyles of the super-rich compared with those of the poorest families.
If, during the week any of our facts about unfairness get right up your nose, please share them.
OXFAM MUSIC RECOMMENDS
Welcome to Condale By Summer Camp (Bargain of the week) £3.99
Inspired by teenage crushes and Corey Haim films, this is an album of immaculately realised, postmodern pop that is perfect for sound tracking the three sunny days we have each year. ‘Ghost Train’ is literally perfect.
