“Nordoff Robbins is an incredible music charity which transforms the lives of thousands of people through music therapy each year. I have witnessed first-hand how Nordoff Robbins music therapy helps people in so many different ways. Music has changed my life and I’m so proud to support a charity which changes the lives of those who need it the most through the healing power of music.”
Each year Nordoff Robbins helps children and adults across the UK struggling with all kinds of conditions including autism, dementia, learning difficulties, mental health problems, stroke, depression or life-threatening and terminal illnesses. As an official Ambassador for the charity since 2011, Alfie is a top supporter, helping to raise awareness and vital funds for their life-transforming work.
“For the fourth year running I’m giving up my birthday for music therapy! I’m asking all my wonderfully generous and supportive fans to help me celebrate by making a donation, if you can, to music charity Nordoff Robbins. All donations, no matter how large or small will help provide thousands of vital music therapy sessions to vulnerable and isolated people across the UK. That’s the best birthday gift I could ever wish for.”
Here are some other ways you can join Alfie in supporting Nordoff Robbins:
Nordoff Robbins keeps Alfie up to date with how his fans are supporting their work and he loves to hear what you’re up to, so don’t forget to mention Alfie if you make a donation or fundraise.
Children & the Arts believes that every child has the right to be inspired by the arts. Our UK wide arts engagement programmes work with deprived children from areas of social and economic disadvantage by building partnerships between their schools and local cultural venues. The charity takes children on a journey into their local arts venue and unlocks the arts for those who need to be inspired by them the most, raising children’s self-esteem and confidence and nurturing their social and educational skills. Through the work of Children & the Arts, children learn that cultural venues are welcoming, accessible places to visit. Since 2006 Children & the Arts has introduced over 300,000 young people to life-changing arts experiences
Trinity Hospice and Brian House Children’s Hospice serves Blackpool, Fleetwood and all the Fylde Coast, providing care and respite to children and adults with life limiting illness. Trinity and Brian House face a very challenging time: demand for our care has never been higher, but funding from Government has never been more uncertain. We rely on the generosity of our supporters to keep our doors open, and 2013 is an important one for us in terms of fundraising events. Hospices are not just places of sadness, but often of happiness and hope, and of astonishing kindness. Trinity has a superb reputation for clinical and medical care, but being based on the Lancashire coast makes raising our profile much more difficult than it would if we were in a big city – which is why Alfie Boe’s generosity in becoming a Patron of his local hospice means so very much to us.
Willow is the only national charity working with seriously ill 16 to 40 year olds to fulfil uplifting and unforgettable Special Days.
For some young adults, their Special Day is the opportunity to return some normality to their lives. For others it is the last chance to fulfil a dream. But for all, it is a life-affirming experience that can lift spirits, reunify families and be a source of strength when it’s needed most.To date, Willow has provided more than 14,500 Special Days for young adults diagnosed with a life-threatening condition such as cancer, motor neurone disease, cystic fibrosis and Huntington’s disease. Founded by former Arsenal goalkeeper and TV presenter, Bob Wilson and his wife, Megs, Willow is a lasting memorial to their daughter, Anna, who died of cancer aged 31. Anna’s love of life and the enriching experiences of her own Special Days were the charity’s inspiration.
