Live Music Now uses LIBOR to support veterans

Thanks to a grant from the UK Treasury, and during its 40th anniversary year, LMN will be using LIBOR funds to provide interactive concerts to veterans of the armed services at care homes in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and English regions.

LMN is also launching a new collaboration with the Pureland Foundation, which will include musical projects for adults with mental health issues and refugees, in the years to come.

 

This project will combat isolation and loneliness for veterans and their dependents across the whole of the UK by organising 700 interactive singing and live music events. Each will include a concert and also some visits to individuals, for those confined to their rooms. The events will be spread evenly around the four English regions, and in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland (100 in each area). They will take place in care homes and communities in which veterans of the armed forces or their dependants are resident, working with care staff, supported by LMN’s trained professional musicians.
