We’re delighted to offer our ongoing support to Jessie’s Fund, a charity that helps children with additional needs through the use of music therapy.

Gear4music and Jessie's Fund

By Samantha Preece | Published 19.10.20

Jessie’s Fund is a York-based charity that helps children with additional and complex needs, as well as those with life-limiting illnesses. Introducing instruments and music to these children makes a huge difference – allowing them to express themselves and connect with the world.

At Gear4music, we strongly believe that music can help with mental wellbeing. That’s why we’re offering a helping hand to Jessie’s Fund and the fantastic work it does.

For children with life-limiting illnesses or additional needs, musical sessions can not only help increase self-esteem, they can also open new pathways to learning, reduce environmental stress, and help them connect with the world around them.  It’s a way for children who usually find it hard to communicate, to express themselves.

Jessie’s Fund Director, Lesley Schatzberger, said: “We were delighted when Gear4music approached us with an offer of support, especially as this happened during lockdown, when, like all charities, we were suffering the consequences of cancelled fundraising events. Their support makes a big difference.”

About Jessie’s Fund

Jessie’s Fund is a charity that operates from York, just like us. They provide instruments to children’s hospices and special schools all over the UK, as well as music therapy sessions and musical training to the staff at these establishments.

By delivering music therapy, as well as offering children the chance to create their own music, Jessie’s Fund is providing an essential part of these children’s development.

The work that Jessie’s Fund does makes a profound impact on the way they cope with and process their unique conditions.
