Funding music and singing sessions for army families and children

The Army Benevolent Fund is delighted to award a £10,000 grant to the charity Make Some Noise, to fund its ‘Upbeat’ music making project for Army service families.

Make Some Noise is a leading music charity in the West Midlands and works with service families and children through local Army welfare teams. The charity delivers its creative ‘Upbeat’ music making sessions with Army families at Beacon Barracks, Stafford. Parents/carers and pre-school age children enjoy fun sessions of singing and making music to promote the children’s behavioural development and wellbeing and strengthen family bonds. Our grant will go towards the costs of fun sessions for around 200 Army beneficiaries.

Tim Sharp, CEO Make Some Noise, said:

“The ongoing support from the Army Benevolent Fund is once again greatly appreciated. We have developed a wonderful community of Army Families who are going to thrive and flourish from our creative sessions.”

Brigadier (Ret’d) Peter Monteith, Chief Operating Officer Army Benevolent Fund, added:

“Our charity promotes the health and wellbeing of Army families, many of whom can become separated, usually because one parent is on operational service. We are pleased to award another grant to Make Some Noise’s award-winning work with service families in the West Midlands.”
