BUMS Give the Gift of Music

Do you have a ukulele languishing in the corner that you no longer play?
Have you moved on to a new instrument and now your old uke is unloved and getting dusty.
Do you suffer from UAS (ukulele acquisition syndrome) and need to declutter?
Do you need an excuse to upgrade to a new ukulele?

We can help you solve all these problems!

BUMS Inc has been asked to help a small rural school requesting 20 ukuleles so they can start a music program.

Rural Aid Australia has a wonderful program called Gift of Music which helps enable disadvantaged children in rural and remote areas gain access to musical instruments, through the donation of preloved/no longer used (and new) band and orchestral instruments.

All BUMS know the positive benefits of playing music and the joy that comes from playing and singing with ukulele. It is widely acknowledged that music, learning music and being part of an ensemble, can play a significant role in students’ learning outcomes. Sadly for many rural students there aren’t always the instruments available.

The gift of ukuleles to a rural school in need, can change many children’s lives.Donate a uke this month for Gift of Music.

Our goal is to collect and donate 20 ukuleles.

You can help by donating a ukulele, preloved, new, any size or colour.

You can also donate any other instrument or help with a cash donation, which will be put towards the purchase of instruments or the repair of useful donated instruments.

We will be collecting at EVERY JAM through April.
