This summer, Julia and Hans Rausing announced grants totalling £2 million to 41 disability charities across the UK. These grants will support charities of varying sizes meet the challenges of helping those with disabilities amidst the cost-of-living crisis.
Annie Mawson’s Sunbeams Music Trust is delighted to be one of these recipient charities, receiving a donation of £25,000 to support a number of Sunbeams Music for Dignity® Projects which provide weekly, fortnightly and monthly music sessions to adults with deteriorating health conditions such as Dementia and Alzheimer’s and physically disabled adults attending Day Centres, Residential Homes and at the Sunbeams Music Centre.
Julia and Hans Rausing said “We have always focused the majority of our Trust on supporting charities that widen opportunities and improve wellbeing and health outcomes. The 41 charities we have selected provide help for people who require significant assistance on a day-to-day basis.
“To meet the complex needs of people with disabilities requires highly skilled and compassionate individuals as well as state of the art equipment and facilities, which are becoming more expensive through the cost-of-living crisis. The charities we are funding are all doing essential work and we are pleased we have been able to help them in continuing to deliver their services.”
