This coming weekend MORE MUSIC is producing a 24 hour Music Party @ LMF2017 with the aim of raising funds for our Homeless Action music programme in Lancaster.
People taking part in the music sessions describe how singing, in particular, has lifted their spirits  'the only reason I walk the planet' and restored their self-belief  'singing has really helped my confidence'
 
They also say it makes a significant contribution to their recovery from addiction  'helps me deal with the bad stuff that happens' and has helped them refocus and rebuild their lives, securing and maintaining a home and returning to paid employment.

This is why over 300 people will be giving their musical energy for free over the 24 hours that start in Market Square at 4pm.
If you want to support the work please 
1. go to our home page and press DONATE or 
2. come down and see us at the APOTHECARY or
3. find a musician and sponsor them


These are the first 4 hours.
