For the 12th year in a row, students from Forte School of Music will be taking to the stage this month to raise money for charity.
On Sunday 18th November, in the annual Forte Playathon, students of all ages will be providing 4 hours of continuous performance at the Red Dragon Centre between 12pm and 4pm. In the run up to this exciting event these dedicated students are collecting as many sponsors as possible in an effort to make this year’s fundraising total higher than ever.
The funds raised from this event will go to Ronald McDonald House, a charity that provides accommodation for families who have children undergoing hospital treatment, allowing them to stay as close as possible to their child during this traumatic time. As a family-orientated business, the work that the charity do to keep families together at difficult times is something that Forte School of Music are passionate to support as much as possible. Having raised over £2000 for Ronald McDonald House last year, the school is planning a number of events and activities this year to break this record, with the popular Playathon kicking things off.
So if you’re in the Red Dragon Centre on Sunday 18th November, why not take a few minutes to stop and make a donation to the charity, and listen to some of the performances. There will be something for everyone with piano, violin, and guitar pieces to entertain you, performed by a wide range of talented students; their youngest student is just 5 years old and their oldest 80!
