What a splendid day we had on the 30th September at our Music Marathon and that is all down to you!
We had a great range of ages and music. Performers from 5 years old to over 80 and wonderful music including opera, soul, classical, popular, musicals and nursery rhymes. The hall was packed for the official opening by Vince Cable and the fantastic numbers by our OK Music School pupils, and we were delighted that we had a good audience for the whole event. We want to say a very, very big THANK YOU you to all of you who gave your time to take part and make this such a successful day and also collected sponsorship money for us. We are delighted to say that our fundraising target of £5,000 has been smashed and has already reached £5,730. With Gift Aid that is £6,242 and we will have more Gift Aid to collect from the cash donations.
We know there will be a little more to add too, so we will let you know the final total once we have it. This will help us make a big difference to OK Music School and the pupils with additional needs we teach to play music and perform, bringing them confidence, self-esteem and the chance to express themselves through music.

Everyone at OKMT and the pupils at OK Music School are so grateful to all of those who took part in our Music Marathon and made it so special. We will send a link to photos of the event soon and let you all know the final total.
Many thanks & best regards
